And, then, I started seeing all those idiot Republican Governors and State Attorneys General with their evil plots to keep people from being able to vote, and I saw red. How dare they try to disenfranchise the elderly, blacks, and other minorities! That shouldn't happen in this country.
So, I called the clerk's office and requested an application for absentee voting. Now is definitely not the time to voluntarily give up my voting rights. Then, when I realized how easy it was going to be, I was glad I had called. Arkansas voter laws do require a picture ID, in order to vote, but that's nothing compared to other states. Then, again, we do still have a Democratic Governor, bless him. The legislature will probably be solidly Republican after the mid-term election. And, we may lose our only Democratic Senator, Mark Pryor, but, so far, so good where voting is concerned.
So, for the next year, at least, I will be able to vote absentee. I certainly hope no one else will consider giving up his/her vote. We're going to need everyone we can get.
