    Voting is easy. There are multiple days to go vote (early voting), and it just takes a little planning to get there. It isn't hard.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    The problem here in NC is that both our candidates suck without fail haha

    That's more or less what I meant. The people I would be inclined to vote for are extremely unlikely to win because they spend pennies on the dollar to the amazing (sarcasm) men and women we eventually elect

    Exceptions to the rule for some who don't have birth records and such noted, I think voting in the US is incredibly easy. So easy that, the only reason you can't do it is because it really isn't that important to you to go out and do it.
    Usually it's fairly easy.

    Occasionally it's somewhat difficult, simply due to the huge number of people voting, which makes it hard to find a time to go vote.

    Considering that most people want to vote for either Romney or Obama the voting process is very difficult.

    I consider myself an informed voter but their offices that show up on the ballot that I have absolutely no clue about. I know college educated people that admit to playing 'any mini minee mo'. Some states are worse than others. I know enough to realize that I am not required to vote in those races that I have nothing about but I don't know if everybody knows that.

    I think the presidential election should be a complete event all to itself. Too many people that don't care about the other races are voting in those races based upon God only knows.

    Voting is easy but if your intentions is to vote for the presidential candidate of your choice then voting is extremely hard to do.

    Re: Is voting easy or difficult?

    It won't be difficult to guess which state.

    Here is an example of a ballot that was several pages long:

    Florida 2012 ballot measures - Ballotpedia

    People are showing up to vote for president. WTF?

    Why were the lines so freaking long? Hmmmm Could it be to discourage a particular demographic from showing up? or was it because these ballots measures couldn't wait until April 3, May 9, June 16 or any other freaking day on the calendar?

    Why put this BS on the ballot during a presidential election? hmmmmmmmmm
