I sat in my bed & voted......

Ok I did have to drive to the PO to drop it off in a safe mailing location.....Dropped my Wifes also.

And my oldest daughter @ 18 cast her very first vote.

And nothing could have been easier. Bonus- its verifiable with a paper trail....

Why doesn't EVERY state do this?

Thanks Oregon for doing it right!

1. Holy Smokes! Another 18yo. Seems a whole bunch of us here at DU have 'em.

I posted about my 18yo and at least half-dozen other members posted about first time voting 18yo kids, too.

3. i will keep that in mind for next election

As i've learned earlier, here in Randall county we didn't have a choice - it was all via voting machines. I was told i could request a mail-in ballot but that today was the last day, and given it was in the afternoon i decided not to for fear that the ballot wouldn't be mailed in on time.

4. You Need Easy Polls Open For Weeks With Mail In

 

Lots of people move around. Make it easy for them too.
