Voting

In California, we have it pretty lucky when it comes to voting.

We can change and update our voter registration online. We can easily apply for (and send in) an absentee ballot roughly a month before and through Election Day. Thanks to laws in California and a handful of other states, you practically have no excuse for not voting.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about our friends, families, and other eligible-to-vote Americans in states like Texas, Wisconsin, and South Carolina — actually, both Carolinas — so add North Carolina as well, among others.

Last Week Tonight host John Oliver takes a comical look — yet, eye-opening — at some of the more Draconian, anti-voting laws throughout the country.

Enjoy… and then do something about it!
