Shall Missourilaw be amended to:In the most recent federal general election of 2008, 32 states allowed voters to cast early ballots without a special excuse. And while most early voters tend to sway toward Republican candidates and issues, the 2008 election defied that trend with record numbers of people casting their early vote for Barack Obama.
- expand options for voters by allowing them to cast ballots in person prior to federal general elections without the current absentee ballot excuse requirement;
- and make it illegal to cast such an early ballot and to vote at the polls for the same election?
