Some people are so conditioned to see nearly everything through race, gender or sexual orientation it clouds their thinking on nearly every issue.
Early voting costs taxpayers extra, shortens the campaign when key issues can and are brought up in the final days (not to mention deaths of some running for office) and is a distraction from the main event. It should be done away with all together. If you can't make it on election day, vote absentee ballot. Completely fair for everybody.
I can hear the whines now. The lines are to long. Well, vote a competent person in as supervisor of elections in your county (probably means not voting for a democrat).
Link to that?
Not in Texas, a big red state. The ID costs $6.

Any American citizen has ample opportunity to vote. The distortion that those not on the left wanting to prevent people from voting is absurd. Want to vote, prove who you claim to be, there are a number of ways to do that.
BTW you also don't need an ID to vote by ballot.
