Early voting opens the door

Early voting opens the door for voter FRAUD. The Democrats have always proclaimed "Vote Early, Vote Often". Let's get back to ONE DAY of voting like it should be.

Humble, As a conservative I

Humble, As a conservative I must say I disagree. Why not give people an opportunity to vote? One day does not do so. I must add, why not ask for an ID?? That is what causes voter fraud, not open polls.
