In Oregon and many counties in Washington state it is now only
possible to vote by mail.  It saves the state $$ and many, including
me, prefer it.

Re: [Global Change: 3890] Re: Voting by Car

Speaking as a registered Washington voter, (who's currently in Canada), 
I found it much easier than other places. That being said, voter turnout 
by mail is very different than voter turnout by showing up someplace, 
almost always higher.

There's often backlash from the argument 'only people who care enough to 
show up at the polls should be allowed to vote'. I don't believe the 
argument myself, I think it's that certain people would rather that 
their party win. But, I could be wrong, it could be a realistic argument.
