Re: Best Eastern Seaboard State for Sales Tax
Voting should be required of every citizen, at least showing up at the location or by mail-in, with easy if not automatic registrations.
Write in whoever you like as a protest, mickey mouse ok, but don't just drop the ball.
Failing to do so penalized by your actual week's income, or the average for your county, whichever is less.
Voting should be easy and it an obligation as a citizen. If you have a SS card... you can vote. Why can't an SS card be scanned for date of birth at the polling place? I suppose cheats will find a way to game whatever system... but the one we have in NYS is kinda stupid.
How about giving people $25 when they vote?
pay attention... someone's life depends on it
