• Yes, voting gets more complex with every election.

    I agree it should be easier to vote in the U.S. It's pretty bad when voting laws and requirements have gotten almost as complicated and full of double speak as income tax laws. So far politicians have succeeded in making everything an extremely complicated undertaking. It should be simple - if you are a citizen of the U.S., you vote. Period.

  • Voting should be easy

    I feel if it was easier to vote the turnout would be greater. I would like to see voting day be a national holiday as people could afford to take time off to vote as they would not be working. Also, eliminate voter ID laws. Lastly, I would like to see free buses or shuttles that can take the elderly and physically disabled voters to go vote. Voting is a right and one should not have to jump through hoops to be able to vote.

  • Larger Electorate Reflects Society

    As a general rule of thumb, it should be easier to vote in all cases. This is because in a democratic state, the more time that the people's voices are heard, the more that our elected leaders are accountable to those voices. A basic tenet of democracy is that power is dervied from the governed. That consent can only be granted through voting.

  • It should not be easier to vote in the U.S..

    It should not be easier to vote in the U.S.. The current voting procedure is adequate for the purposes of holding elections in America. Introducing new technology for casting or counting votes has proved to be risky because of the possibility of voting fraud or inaccurate vote counting. Electronic voting is somewhat unreliable at this point.

  • It's too easy.

    No, it should not be easier to vote in the United States, because someone should have to really want to vote in order to vote. Anymore, a person from a particular political party can just round up old people or homeless people, and have them vote in exchange for cigarettes or something. It dilutes the quality of the vote.
