Somehow we are in the middle of the last day of 8 days of early voting and lines are still running 3 to 6 hours long.
Maybe I'm not remembering things right, but when I was growing up in the 70's and 80's there was no early voting (that I can recall) and absentee voting was used by those who were overseas or who were not going to be around for whatever reason on Election Day. It wasn't considered an alternative kind of voting as it is today. Virtually everyone voted on one day...and there weren't the lines that we have seen now for 8 straight days.
It doesn't appear that significantly less people actually voted back then. So were the ballots shorter? Were there more polling stations?
Someone help me out here.
