I think Georgia should have gone farther, and have people voting only in election day.
If voting is so hard for you, then probably you should not vote.
Okay I'll bite..You only want people to vote on election day...So you're okay with disenfranchise military members, other government workers, employees of private businesses that are assigned overseas? How about the election poll workers that have to vote early? How about the disabled that can't make it to a polling location? How about the ones that go to their polling location and find the ballots haven't been delivered or the voting machines aren't working, do they lose their right to vote or wait hours until the problem is solve? Myself, I like to vote at home, and researching ballot initiatives while drinking my favorite adult beverage...Voting by mail has been ultra popular in the states that allow it. In some states like Washington, Oregon, Utah, Colorado it's the only approved method to cast your ballot.
This year’s August primary in Arizona showed similar results. The vast majority—88 percent—of voters cast their ballots early, and most of them by mail.

Absentee voting has existed for ever. I am not against it. What I think is regular voting should be on the voting day, like it is in Europe. If Tuesday is a problem, I am fine making it a Sunday. I just don't want the left to then complain that those religious conservatives go straight from church to the poll voting booth. Because is going to happen and we will certainly make the best of it.
In any case, I must say I have used early voting in the past, is convenient, I have used it because is there, but if you complain about 'losing democracy', Europeans don't complain at all for voting on just one day and showing government issued identification. Here in the US, we need to give people a month to vote, or even worse, bring the ballot to their beds or couches, and tell them how to vote and not ask for identification, that's what the left and democrats want. There is no 'voter suppression' in voting on election day and on a voting place and asking for identification.
