Professor and Political Expert Discusses Impact of Early Voting
April 28, 2011
Dr. J. Michael Bitzer, professor of Political Science and political expert recently spoke to the Charlotte Observer regarding the GOP proposal that would cut a week from early voting and would also end Sunday voting and so-called "same-day registration."
Bitzer said that of the 4.3 million votes cast in 2008, 60 percent - or 2.6 million - were cast before Election Day.
"It had a huge impact," said Bitzer. "In today's world, people expect flexibility. They expect options, and that's one thing early voting gives them, being able to cast a ballot at their convenience."
