Who's going to count the votes? In a system this complicated, I don't trust a fair counting of the votes in this town. Sorry, but there's been too many shady election results with this crew of political activists running things.

Ritchie did his job. Too bad his boss doesn't have his back.

The system is merely an electronic version of the same form a person can fill in with a pen on paper and mail in. They are processed the same way with all the verification steps that a mailed in registration would go through. The problem with this eludes me. The only conclusion is that these politicians and groups want to keep people from easily registering and voting, just as with the defeated voter ID amendment.

..."“illegal and unilateral action.” ***************************************** Whenever I read those words I always immediately think of former Republican Governor "King" Timmy Pawlenty.

How much will this law suit cost Minnesota taxpayers? Minnesota is always highest in the percentage of its citizens that vote. We ought to be proud of that and encourage it. Republicans seem to feel they can't win if people get out and vote. Enough of their voter suppression.

No one has gerrymandered the office more. Can't wait to see him move on.
