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.

“We do not believe in aggressive or preventive war. Such war is the weapon of dictators, not of free democratic countries like the United States.”~ Truman, Sept 1, 1950
