36. He cuts back early voting days and early voting hours, then wonders why the lines are so long

on voting day?

It's simple ARITHMETIC.

If you have 100,000 people vote per early voting day and you had 10 early voting days, then cut back the number of voting days to 5, you should expect an extra 500,000 people on the regular voting day!

The number of overall voters won't diminish just because you decrease the early voting days. You just get more voters on each day.
