Only 3 voting places? Only during business hours? I guess people who work during the day are screwed huh? Supposed to be a law that lets you take off, but that doesn't mean anything when you can be fired for anything.

Mail every eligible voter a ballot with return postage. Several states do it with no issue.

Unless there is a problem with everyone voting.
