Letter to the Editor

Now that the Supreme Court has gutted the voting rights act what is now the best way to make sure our right to vote is protected? I think one solution is for people to start voting by mail. I started voting by mail years ago and I absolutely love it. I can sit down and spend hours or days with my ballot and do online research so that I know about the candidates and the issues and do a better job of voting. It sure beats standing in line and voting in a rush knowing that I’m holding up the line for other people.

When I vote from home I don’t risk the possibility of not getting to vote because the line is too long. When I send in my ballot they don’t know if I’m Code Pink or Tea Party, white or black, straight or gay. And because I already voted I’m not taking up a place in line and maybe someone else will get to vote in my place on election day. I think that voting by mail should be encouraged as a strategy to prevent those who are trying to keep you from voting from succeeding.
