It doesn't say when the ballot must be returned, and at first I thought it was a two-way thing. That they would be able to vote from their temporary location, via computer. That is what the headline leads one to understand. Its not until one reads the third paragraph that says it must be mailed in. This is not much different than the old method of having to mail for a ballot, then mail it back, except it shortens the time from request to receipt by the voter. This still requires one to vote to early. What if something comes up and he/she wishes to change their vote in that month and a half period? Its done, and there appears to be no way to change it.

when (if ever) the process becomes entirely online, you should be able to change right up to the 'polls closing'.

Let's see: you can choose your candidates online, but you can't submit the ballot. Makes perfect sense.

The DNC better take notice, too. If implemented correctly, this will make it more difficult to stuff the ballot-box. The GOP wants only to suppress the fraudulent votes. Nothing more. Nothing less.
