Whew! It's a good thing we're not a democracy. And if you notice, there is no explicit right to vote in the Constitution, like the right to speech. It states ways voting cannot be denied. States decide qualifications for voters and so long as these do not conflict with anything in the Constitution, it's something that can be withheld.
You guys have an obsession with one man, one vote being vital. People who need way too much assistance to vote are not publically minded enough to do so, imo. Nearly a whole month to vote is ridiculous and it does increase shenanigans because there's always some. This allows more time for them.
Before you read the “Outside The Lines” report, consider this:
Taping the opposing team’s sideline still isn’t banned; only taping the opposing team from the sideline is illegal.
Also remember this:
Taping the opposing team from the sideline wasn’t banned until 2006, yet the report cites examples as far back as 2000. ~NESN
