17. I could support that. Isn't voting our civic duty?

 

If we made voting mandatory and forced businesses to accomodate it reasonably (maybe make voting day a real national holiday), I think that could work in the long term.

I don't think it will help much for this election, however, and that was sort of my point; why are so many people in a panic about voting issues we can do nothing about before the election? What purpose does that serve? What I know we can do is vote and make sure everyone we know votes. We can also report any voting problems to authorities. Beyond that...?
