So what the hell should we do to make voting in our major elections better? Well, as the video suggests, expanding early voting to all 50 states, moving Election Day to a weekend day (like several other countries), and/or declaring Election Day a national holiday are just a few reasonable solutions. They almost make too much sense to actually happen, though, right?
Until we move Election Day to a day of the week that, you know, actually makes sense, we'll just have to deal with the inconvenience of voting around work, doctors appointments, and the other demands of life on a damn weekday. All of this "so farmers who have been dead for more than a century won't have an excuse to miss church," according to the video. Yeah, feel free to let out an exasperated sigh right about now.
Inconvenience or not, you better get out there and vote. Your "I'm too busy" excuse is basically bullshit now that an American astronaut cast his absentee ballot from aboard the freaking International Space Station. Please, please vote.
