The New York Times reported yesterday that “more than 22 million people have already voted, through early voting and absentee ballots … — most of which were cast before the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, announced on Friday that the bureau was reviewing a new trove of emails related to Hillary Clinton.”
The late discovery of a large cache of Hillary’s previously hidden out of proper channel emails and the ensuing controversy thus means that these millions of early voters voted in ignorance of a major event — potentially a turning point — in the campaign.
Perhaps early voters should be allowed to request a mulligan, and vote again. Failing that, early voting should be largely eliminated, except for necessary absentee voting and severe hardship cases.
