The issue circulating the internet now is how will we effectively vote this upcoming election (in the USA). USPS seems to be under attack as states move to 100% mail-in voting. In person voting does not seem viable with concerns about spreading Covid-19. Well, here is our solution!
Many schools are closed, right? (the physical buildings)
Schools across the US are moving to an online teaching option for the fall. That means schools are open to be used at voting station or polls. Huge buildings, from elementary school cafeterias to high school gyms, are open and free for voting. Use these spaces to vote and vote safely. Limits on numbers, checking for fevers, screening stations, and sanitization stations.
Two Day Holiday for Voting
This isn’t a normal election year. Give the voters two days to get this job done. Paid days off. In fact, election day should be a holiday every election. But this year is different. Two days.
Let Prisoners Vote
We have over 2 million prisoners in the US. Let them vote.
Buy More Voting Machines — Now
We have time before this election. Get the federal government to buy more voting machines to make this two day event happen. I have no idea how many voting machines were used in 2016 but add several thousand more to that number. The US federal government has the money.
