Know what would be great? If Obama uses his second term to finally revamp the election process for the future.
At least he tried campaigns for early voting to unclog some of these polling stations. I would've hoped Florida to be more inclined through it though. - Zu from AOD
Can he even? I thought that a big part of the fuckupery is due to the states (or counties?) each running things as they see fit. (Now, this could be an equal protection issue, but (1) fuck the Rehnquist court and (2) I'm not sure I'd trust the Roberts court to do the right thing anyways.) - Andrew C (✔)
The Feds could surely do something about re-setting the date for Presidential elections, or making that day a national holiday so everyone can vote, or maybe even setting several days as election days. And then there's that whole Electoral College thing. Local Governments would eventually fall into line for local elections. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
