The NFL Shield At Midfield

The strongest argument against early voting I've ever read

if you did your research and it led you to straight ticket, rock and roll.

and i highly doubt more research was done than me. im a bit ocd on research on a candidate, esp locally.

but i would bet if people did do some homework, the % of straight ticket would go down.

if anything, don't allow straight ticket back to back elections. im sorry guys, but straight ticket is for dummies. and that goes for BOTH parties.

if you agree with the republican platform on literally every single issue and the democratic platform on literally zero issues, is it logical to vote straight-ticket republican?

I don't agree with every thing rep and don't disagree with everything dem.

I never have voted straight ticket. I think any rational, open minded person would have a harder time voting for one party only.

If the reason for keeping it is to speed things up I don't think that's all that crucial. So many places allow early voting. Once every 4 years is not to much to ask of our citizens to wait an extra 45 secs to a minute.

People take more time and thought at Redbox than the voting booth. Lol

If the Huddle is a credible microcosm, "rational, open minded" voters might make up less than 10%. Just sayin....

hey pstall just whenever you get around to it can you please list the actual benefits of eliminating straight ticket voting? perhaps this time without going off on a dumb tangent about how it will make the voter base "more informed" somehow (it won't)?

So by saying it won't make someone more informed you concede straight ticket voters don't know who or what they are voting for?

They would hit everything with R or D on it. Instead of one button that says R or D. Yes, let's get this out there instead of job creation ideas or anything else.
