With the 2008 Election cycle to an almost close I think all Americans are glad to see there were no major election problems. However, our system of voting is far from perfect and the President elect and Congress need to address some issues in the way we vote. UNIFORM VOTING HOURS AND EARLY VOTING - Congress should mandate that all states hold early voting and that the polls be open from 7:00 AM to 9PM at voting locations. This will give ample time for everyone to vote, and as far as voting goes the more people we can get to vote the better our country is. AUTOMATIC VOTING FOR NEW AMERICAN CITIZENS - For a while Immigration groups were registering new citizens right after they took the oath of citizenship but stopped. I think all new citizens should be registered to vote immediately after being sworn in. VOTING FOR FELONS - Jim Crow lives on and states have differing laws on this. "Do the crime do the time" but once the sentence has been served the debt to society is OVER and full voting rights should be restored. AVAILABILITY OF VOTING MACHINES - The allocation of voting machines should be based upon an uniform allocation of machines on the basis of past voting behaviors at each voting location. REDUCTION OF NATURALIZATION FEES - It costs around $1400.00 to become a citizen and this fee was raised to keep primarily Hispanics from applying for citizenship because they tend to vote Democratic. I think Congress should look at reducing the costs involved, the raising of fees was a move by the GOP to keep those who got legal resident status in the Reagan era Immigration Amnesty program from becoming citizens.
