    Conservative strategist: "I don't want everyone to vote. Our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up, as the voting populace goes down." Basically, despite pretending to uphold the sacredness of the Constitution and the spirit of the Founding Fathers, Democracy is the enemy of the Republican Party.

    Mail vote is apt for corruption. India will never allow such a system on a large scale, except for military men stationed in borders. Also, Nobody can vote here without an Government approved ID, example : Driving License, Election ID ( there is also an exclusive ID when you register yourself in the voting list )

    Notice when the Supreme Court intervened... after Obama was re-elected in 2012. They wanted us to vote but they felt Obama was a changing point and a threat to their democracy.. so thus comes the reaction to that in “Donald Trump” & massive voter suppression. But in the midst of all that is George Floyd & the Covid-19 pandemic which got the world to see the black reality in the American democracy & world reality. The call for voting to change policies coupled with Donald Trump continuously pushing voting conspiracies have caused a rush to the polls.

    The election should be based on the percentage of votes cast for a candidate in each state. Then add the percentages from all states, and the candidate with the highest totaled percentage wins. This way, every vote would count, and without giving unfair advantage to states with a higher population. For example: (and just to show principle, not reflective of actual data) California - 520,381 Total Votes 18% Republican (93,669 votes) 79% Democratic (411,101 votes) 3% Other (15,611 votes) (55 Electoral Votes - Democratic) Rhode Island - 11,829 Total Votes 82% Republican (9,699 Votes) 17% Democratic (2,011) Votes) 1% Other (119 Votes) (1 Electoral Vote - Republican) Just looking at these 2 states alone, An Election based on Electoral votes: Rhode Island doesn’t matter. It’s California’s landslide 55 to Rhode Island’s 4. An Election based on Individual Votes: Rhode Island still doesn’t matter, because it’s California’s 411,101 to Rhode Island’s 9,699. An election based on percentages, however, would reflect Republican - 18% + 82% = 100% Democratic - 79% + 17% = 96% where all votes from both states would be regarded equally. Do this with all 50 states, and individual votes would determine the country’s decision (as a whole), without giving unfair advantage to ‘hipster hordes’ over ‘rural farmers.’ U shouldn’t have to live, cramped like a sardine, in an over-crowded city for your vote to mean something. And that’s basically what we have rite now. =\

    How can they call themselves a democracy when where you live really is what matters when you vote? A vote from someone who lives in a small state is not as important as the vote of someone who lives in one of the bigger states that earn a candidate more Electoral votes.

    Here in Canada, the registration process to vote can take place on the day of the election at the polling center. All you need is proof of address and photo ID, or should you not have those things, you can have someone from your district come with you to the polls to vouch for your proof of identity. When you submit your taxes, you can check to see that you're registered to vote. We have had vote-by-mail for ages for Canadian voters submitting their ballots from overseas, and our military officials stationed abroad. We have advanced polling days to reduce the influx of people showing up on the day of the election, we have a substantial number of volunteers to collect the ballots safely, and the role of Elections Canada is to ensure the security and privacy of those ballots. See what the States have done, and how feverishly the Republican Party has been stripping the rights of American citizens from participating in the democratic republic they covet, is truly unsettling to watch. And it makes me angry that Canadians, gifted with all this infrastructure to ensure their ballots are counted, only to show up in dwindling numbers is appalling. We don't know how good we've got it here, and I'm always disappointed to hear of people (my own family included) who chose not to vote despite there being no barriers obstructing them to do so. What other people clamor for, equal representation in government, they only deign to use when they feel like it. This should be a wakeup call to anyone who idly sits back on election day and says their vote doesn't matter; or who complain about politics without even making the bare minimum effort to engage in public policy. Look how easily and how quickly that RIGHT can be stripped away from us, and why we must never allow partisanship to overrule the majority will of the people. We are too complacent nowadays, and quick to complain, but slow to act. I hope that everyone watching this realizes that this battle doesn't end at the US borders - it's everywhere that claims itself to be a fair democracy. Nothing should be taken for granted, nothing is guaranteed, all rights are earned and should be safeguarded, for they can easily be stripped away in the wrong hands.
