As the article intimates, 60,000 Ohioans have taken advantage of this “Golden Week” in the past, and they have done so for legitimate reasons. The United States has for just a few cycles allowed extended voting days, and this has resulted in a greater voter participation in our elections, which is a good for Democracy. It is too bad you are unable to see this. When we enter other countries, illegally (as we did in Iraq in 2003) and try to force our form of government down their throats, it is understandable that people are hesitant when the invaders send only %53 of eligible voters to the polls. Until we can do better (MUCH better) we need to keep the Republican war machine at home.
