Curious. Okay, I'll bite - name one GOP state where it is less convenient for a person to cast a ballot in an election today than it was thirty years ago.

Curious. Do you mean it is less convenient to “cast a vote” or to “have the vote count” as equal to other votes? Because if it’s the latter, then it’s clear that the GOP has nearly perfected the art form of gerrymandering to reduce the effectiveness of Democratic voting. Eight of the ten worst gerrymandered states are controlled by the GOP: North Carolina, Pennsylvania, WestVirginia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Utah, Texas, Arkansas, Ohio.

Meanwhile, a recent decision by a federal court in the case of Whitford vs. Gill, ruled that gerrymandered districts in Wisconsin unfairly suppressed the vote. Wisconsin!

Democracy is severely screwed up, and it isn’t because of mail-in voting, it’s because of the corruption of politics by “selecting the voters” instead of “selecting the candidates” practiced mostly, but not exclusively by the GOP.
