Yesterday, The Big E referenced the city of Minneapolis's analysis of the 2012 election (PDF). There's a lot of interesting information contained in that document. To me, the most striking was this map, which compares early voting options in all 50 states. It's readily apparent that Minnesota is one of a handful of states that's fallen behind.
This simply isn't acceptable. We need to remove as many barriers to voting as we possibly can, and limiting voting to a single 13-hour window on a single day is an enormous barrier to many people. We can do better -- after all, 32 other states already have.
