do you think voting laws need to be changed in this country? should the voting age be lowered? should there be a test? should govt issued photo idea be required? should election day be a national holiday?

i think polls should be open 24 hrs. 13 hrs is not long enough. some people work 13 hrs a day. people shouldnt have to choose to go to work or vote.

Absentee ballots, early voting, etc...all take care of those that can't vote on election day.

Hi

I don't think the voting age should be lowered.

I definitely don't think the age should be lowered nor do I think we need a national holiday to vote.

I've been voting absent ballot for about 10 years or so.

In New Mexico, voters can apply for an absentee ballot about a month before the election.
