I may be wrong, but isn’t a presidential election a federal election? Shouldn’t there be a federal process for voting: early votes, mail-in votes, deadline for all votes, etc.?
If that isn’t the case, it should be changed.
Waiting an extra three days or a week for one or two states can create so much suspicion.
Vote counters: Either wearing a hat or mask of a candidate should be illegal for counters as well as voters. The verification distance between counters and party inspectors has to be at a reasonable viewing distance. This is much more important than grocery shopping.
My last thought is: How does anyone know whether or not their vote is counted? In all the elections in which I have participated, I have never known that my vote was counted, even though I know I “voted.”
Of course, the pollsters often give out the final outcome before the election even starts, discouraging some voters to show up to vote.
Something is wrong and needs to be fixed.
