Ohio is voting today. That was never challenged - at all.

Just how the hell is that voter suppression?

Personally, I think the vote should be held on November 6 only. Absentee ballots should be accepted only if the person is absent. And every mother's son that votes should have to present photo ID - just like I have to present photo ID when I vote.

This voting of convenience is costly and doesn't add that much to the vote. It does allow people to vote on less than full information, which is a travesty, in my opinion.

The original vote processes were good enough. We should return to them. The intent of the founders was to make it a little inconvenient. People should put out effort to participate in a republic. Just like 'serving' in office. It should not be rewarded by making the servant the commander of the people or making them millionaires over their term in office.
