Election Day Is Sacred

By Mitt Romney (@ericzanzucchi)

The state of New York is considering adding a second day to vote in counties where the turnout is low due complications caused by Hurricane Sandy. As an American, I am offended by this. Election Day is sacred.

Our forefathers braved foul weather all the time. If an American really wants to vote they would trudge through the swamplands of Queens or Staten Island to their respective polling places and cast their vote. If the circumstances of this storm mean that only residents of the rural counties of New York, unaffected by the storm, can make it to their polling places then so be it. They took the time and effort to vote and should be rewarded by helping to elect whatever candidate they happened to vote for. How would I know which way certain counties were leaning?
