Early voting (not absentee) ended at 1 PM. It is hard to discern what it means other it increased a lot over 2012. Since you could vote at any polling place in the county, you can’t directly infer which sections of the county people were coming from. The only obvious pattern is that people voted more in the 10 early early voting locations, pulling people away from a closer location that opened only for the final 10 days.
As for me, I’m totally ready for online voting. Given the flimsy ID requierements, why worry about fraud. If I can buy health insurance online, they can work out voting. If my voter ID card had a pin (it has a registration number), that is enough to confirm that the mailing address was valid.
Give me an online ballot where I can vote at 2 AM from my home. Provide a picture and candidate statement so I can make an informed choice. Allow me to change my votes up until the polls close. People who want the experience or don’t want to vote online can still go in person and stand in line for two hours if they choose.
