Phyllis Schlafly: Stop Early Voting

"Contrary to liberal propaganda, early voting decreases overall voter turnout. Early voting harms third party candidates who lack a political organization to get out early voters. Early voting is a misnomer. More accurate names would be premature voting, uninformed voting, or political machine voting. Early voting even violates federal law, which for more than a century has required national elections to occur on the same day. Early voting disenfranchises Election Day voters by determining the outcome before Election Day. What if jurors were allowed to decide they are tired of a lengthy trial and want to convict a defendant mid-way through the trial and go home? Isn't it just as important for voters to hear all the facts about candidates before voting?" - Phyllis Schlafly, writing for the Eagle Forum.
