Here’s How Drive Through Voting Leads To Cheating In Elections
I don't really want to weigh in on the new voter restrictions signed into law in Texas. It seems like a bunch of b.s. to me, but it's not going to change what I do. What I want to do is examine one piece of this law because it tells me if there's one bad apple, then the whole thing is rotten.
So let's non-politically look at "drive-through voting". You are just doing the same thing you did when you walked into a place. You have to supply the same information and do all of the same things, the only thing that has changed is you are on wheels.
I found the only reason people claim it's bad is that you could have a passenger in the car who could bully you into voting one way or another, but they sure as heck could do that when they take you to the voting booth. The other is that there might be bumper stickers on the car in front of you that influence your vote, but that's the same as all the signs you see going into your polling place.
I'm calling total b.s. on this. In some of our big towns in Texas drive-through voting is needed to keep things moving and one political party would rather slow than speed up the votes there. This is a garbage law based on garbage claims.
Voting should be as easy as paying a bill online. One I.D.number, one social and a password, and it's done. There is something definitely hinky when people want to make it harder to vote. Still, at the end of the day, I hope this backfires spectacularly, it's unAmerican to do anything to make it harder to vote.
