Voice of the people
Fiber to the home internet
A salute goes out to Tallahatchie Valley EPA, Tombig-
bee EPA, Prentiss County EPA, and Alcorn EPA. These
Northeast Mississippi Electrical Cooperatives have taken
the initiative to bring Fiber to the Home internet to their
member-owners. In my opinion Fiber to the Home is one of
the most important issues of our time, rivaling the electri-
fication of rural America in the 1930s. Education, health-
care, agriculture, realty, and other businesses will benefit
from the advanced features and speed of fiber-based
broadband. Senior citizens and other patients will benefit
from telehealth by connecting rural healthcare providers
with doctors and specialists in more urban locations.
Through distance learning, educational opportunities will
present themselves as students will be able to connect to
educational hubs at schools and remotely take classes with
teachers and professors teaching online and interacting
directly with students.
On the realty front, home values will increase, and
homeowner prospects will be more likely to consider the
area for relocation. Work from home professionals and
entrepreneurs have a chance to live where they want and
conduct business online. Home entertainment options con-
tinue to grow in the broadband-based market with stream-
ing becoming the normal rather than the exception.
The possibilities are endless with a fiber-based broad-
band network, which is the gold standard of internet
delivery. The very future of our children, grandchildren
and beyond will depend upon the decision that is made by
the Monroe County Electric Power Association Board of
Directors in the coming days concerning the adoption of a
broadband-based internet service for our member-owned
Cooperative. I call on the Board to immediately adopt a
resolution to move forward with the installation of a broad-
band network within the service area of the Cooperative.

An alternative to tightening down on absentee ballots

What if, instead of tightening down, Mississippi loos-
ened up?
What if, instead of having people running around trying
to get people to sign up for an absentee ballot, and then
trying to influence their vote, every active registered
voter got their ballot delivered to them, automatically, a
few weeks before Election Day, and had multiple ways to
return it (US Mail, 24x7 secure drop boxes, staffed vote
centers for those who needed assistance or needed acces-
sibility options).
Well, we actually know the answer, because that is how
elections work for all citizens in Colorado, Oregon, Utah,
Washington, Hawaii in 2020 and most of California’s voters
in 2020. It’s called “Vote at Home.” Arizona and Montana
follow a similar path with about 70% of their voters signed
up for “permanent absentee.” Nebraska will have 11 coun-
ties on the 100% vote at home model for 2020. North Dako-
ta does this for 30 counties, too. And these states show no
higher, and often lower incidence of election shenanigans,
per the Heritage Foundation’s research.
Notice that the states above are red, purple and blue.
No political bias here when it comes to voter engagement.
And speaking of engagement, Colorado, Montana, Ore-
gon and Washington consistently see some of the highest
voter turnout in the country. Utah had the largest increase
between 2014 and 2018 after rolling out their “vote at
home” model. A great reference on this is the Nonprofit
Vote “America Goes to the Polls 2018” report. It showed
three policies that drive higher voter engagement: Vote at
Home, same day registration, and automatic voter registra-
In contrast, Mississippi ranked a lowly 47th in voter
turnout in 2018. “Tightening down” on mailed-out ballots
will not improve that result, even with an improvement in
early in-person voting. While the state may not be ready
to jump from its current model all the way to full “vote at
