States should modernize election process

I commend the people in Florida and elsewhere where voters had to stand in line for hours to vote. I couldn't, I wouldn't and I shouldn't have to endure such an antiquated process to vote in the 21st century. If states don't modernize their election process, the federal government will. Congress has the power to regulate federal elections. If I can bank and pay my taxes online, I should be able to vote online. Oklahoma needs to extend early voting, allow all third parties on the ballot and allow email voting. The Electoral College should be abolished, so all people can see the presidential candidates, not just 10 states. Let every vote count.
