Frankly, I think early voting is dumb. Everyone should vote on the same day, unless they have a valid reason for not being able to be in their state. Like work or military or some medical need to be in another state. Then issue an absentee ballot for people like that. There's no need for all these multiple schedules. Then have all this reporting on who is ahead in early voting. Just leave it alone for election day. If that's bad for Democrats then that says something about their base. If blacks can vote on a Sunday then they can vote on election day too.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
