Scalia, Thomas and Alito on Absentee Voting

From their opinion in today's voter ID decision:

That the State accommodates some voters by permitting (not requiring) the casting of absentee or provisional ballots, is an indulgence - not a constitutional imperative that falls short of what is required.

An "indulgence". Whether or not they are right as a matter of constitutional law, that language seems awfully dismissive of a mechanism that allows many who otherwise couldn't to vote.
