    now have  a very strict voter Photo ID law that excludes photo IDS not issued by a state university or student ID photos without an expiration date and so on. They are being super tough here in PA.  Repubs hope to steal PA too, I doubt they will..but they sure are trying to take PA along with OH and FL to make up for all these other states trending for Obama more so each day.

      and we have the best voting system in the country, as far as I'm concerned. All mail. If you're registered and participating you get a ballot, well in advance of election day. But then again, this state is firmly in the hands of Democrats, and they're trying to encourage democratic participation, not limit it by fabricating a bunch of bogus fraud claims.

        is that it was the Republicans who came up with the idea.

        Honest.

        Okay, the law was passed many years ago, long before the 2000 election & the new "tough on voter fraud" obsession Republicans have now. No, I don't know what happened to that party since. Maybe Grover Norquist or Karl Rove snuck into our state one night between then & now, & brainwashed them all. All I know is most of the current Republicans in my state are as creepy as those in any other state.
