“I think Sundays just should be – some things you just shouldn’t do on Sundays, so I am just opposed to voting on Sunday,” Starnes said.

If he doesn't like Sunday voting, then he shouldn't vote on Sundays. Me, I have no problem with it--why should I be inconvenienced by his religious scruples?

Actually, I'd go for the elimination of straight-ticket voting and even like the idea of eliminating any indication of party affiliation on the ballot. If you think party is important, go into the ballot box with your list of people instead of looking for a color or symbol as a way to vote.

I used to think this way, and used to chide my mother for doing it, but now that I'm older too, my memory isn't as good, and I don't care to juggle paper in the ballot box--where there isn't even a place to put down my purse. I voted straight-line DEMOCRAT at the last November election for the very first time (I'm 63) and was delighted with the simplicity and speed. I still went through everything as not every office has party-affiliated candidates. Given the current state of the GOP, especially here in SC, I cannot foresee voting for any Republican any time soon.
