From the "Credit where it's due" file.

Every once in a while, even a Republican gets something right...
Voters should face a deadline of 8 p.m. on Election Day to get their ballots in to county election officials, Secretary of State Sam Reed said Friday, as he submitted a set of reforms to the Legislature.
It's not really his idea, of course. It's the way things are already done, for instance, in Oregon. It's a good one just same, though, and Reed's backing should help make it happen.

I've never understood the handwringing over this--there's nothing at all wrong with the system the way it is now. Even if King County has every ballot by election day, it's still going to take them a while to do the counting. Why risk disenfranchising voters by making their vote dependent on whether or not the post office gets their letter in on time?
