Based on evidence of past transgressions, we should be far more concerned about election fraud than voter fraud. And, Ohio and Florida are two of the worst.

" we should be far more concerned about election fraud than voter fraud." ....yes. Last week a video surfaced of the NM Republican Party vice-chair training poll challengers in tactics that directly contradict NM law. And there have been a number of stories of Democrats finding that their address and party designation has been changed when checking on their voter registration status. Voter suppression is the real election fraud being perpetrated.

In Ohio, the GOP Sec. of State is appealing to the SCOTUS to uphold his state's ending early voting. In the 2008 election, the absence of early voting caused lines 10 hours long - only in Dem precincts, of course. The vote-suppressors in Ohio are hoping that holding up the resolution to early voting will confuse enough voters that they'll just stay home. Such a blatant and undemocratic movement has never been seen since the Joe McCarthy era. This soulless party will, like their candidate, stop at nothing to win.

ranger78 - So the courts block the will of the people again. Hmmm. --------------- No, they blocked the will of ALEC and the Koch brothers.

ranger78: "So the courts block the will of the people again. Hmmm." The will of the people used to support segregation and voting by men only. Hmmm.

Tue Minnesota GOP is leaving it up to the voters to throw out the Voter ID Law unlike the other states. Hopefully they will throw out the GOP as well as their Voter ID Law. What have they done the last 2 years besides closing down the government, passing a voter ID law that discriminates against seniors, disabled, minorities and students and an anti gay hate bill? NOTHING!
