I think your suggestion about the Absentee Ballot, is a very good one. All the rules sound simple & manageable. This would make it "easy" for almost anyone, no matter their age, or distance from a polling place. Only ONE problem. This puts a whole lot of discretion in the hands of what are usually "volunteers" who do the paper work. OFTEN, these places have DOZENS of right-wing people who show up for their "duty" & perhaps do their work fairly accurately. But in my experience, there are those who work there, who do NOT want a "fair" outcome, but will throw away ballots, or lose some ballots, or put stray markings on ballots, etc. A few years back, it was not too uncommon to find boxes & boxes of uncounted ballots to be floating down the river, (after an election). If you are a Democrat in a RED state, you should go watch them on a voting day & see if anything looks unusual, or even partially "suspect." For we KNOW the Koch boys are busy working their "magic" with bribes & bonuses, if the election goes "their way." There are people who register & vote in several states.... Who use false ID's etc --- Oh, It's a JUNGLE out there.
