The votification

I just finished a Salon article on voting rights and voter suppression, which mostly says things you probably already know about lots of new laws making it more difficult to vote in lots of states. One thing at the end of the article really struck me though:

For that matter, why not just move the entire country to the vote-by-mail system we use in my home state of Oregon? It's quick, it's convenient, it leaves a paper trail, and we have had no credible accusations of voter fraud since it was adopted during the 1990s -- and a stunning 86 percent of registered voters cast ballots in the 2004 presidential election.

Why the hell DON'T we do that? That seems like an excellent plan to me.

  1. Kos agrees. I read this back in November, and it’s a pretty good argument about this.
