3. How does the elimination of one day= voter supression?


You are making it sound like the sky is falling, and the post office is closing up shop.

Lets say a ballot would have arrived on saturday. It will now arrive on Monday, 2 days later. Seeing how absentee ballots are mailed well in advance, 2 days doesn't really matter.

Also, if you want to mail a letter, you can put it in a mailbox 7 days a week, and it will still be picked it.

Ballots may have to be mailed out on the thursday before election, instead of the friday, but as long as that is printed on the ballot, and everybody is aware if it, I don't see a problem, just mail the ballots out a day or two earlier, so people still have the same number of days to vote.
