early voting http://michiganradio.org en Commentary: Should we have early voting? http://michiganradio.org/post/commentary-should-we-have-early-voting <p>If you are a politician, or promoting one of the ballot proposals and want to influence my vote, don’t waste your time.</p><p>I voted a week ago, by absentee ballot, even though I may be home on election day. I can do that because I am 60 years old. Hey, you should be able to get some benefit out of being 60.</p><p>But here’s the thing. Unless you are my age or older, you can’t legally get an absentee ballot, except in a very few cases, mostly if you know you are going to be in jail on election day, or out of town.</p> Wed, 24 Oct 2012 12:24:55 +0000 Jack Lessenberry 9593 at http://michiganradio.org Commentary: Should we have early voting?
