We'll just have to disagree on this one, apparently. It seems to me that buying up a whole stack of hundreds or thousands of absentee ballots, then filling them out at your leisure and mailing them in, is a heck of a lot easier than trying to buy the votes of people voting at the voting booths.

OK, I will not pursue except to say, that the only difference I see is the few who would not show up to vote. It is not like we are talking about folks who care in the first place.

Both votes are bought in advance, your concern seems to be with delivery. Going to 100,000 homes and collecting ballots seems like a bit of a nightmare so again, I see it as equal. As long of you have to verify as stringently for the ballot whenever you get it
