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.
If the voting lines at polling places were the same, then i'd be fine with this. however, when heavily urban democratic areas have 7 hour lines and rural white areas have 7 minute lines, then the early voting is needed.
