2. Another dumb rule
Why isn't the rule that the ballots have to be postmarked before 8:00 pm on election day? That would take care of screwups by the postal service or unintentional delays in service. Why does it seem that a lot of the laws ruling how we vote make it harder to vote and harder to make sure all the votes get counted properly. Having people fill out ballots and counting the results isn't rocket science why do we make it so difficult (yes I know it's part of how you steal elections or interfere with true democracy)
