  •  the point is harassment and intimidation (7+ / 0-)

    Some people, when they are told that people know how they usually vote, find that very intimidating. The ballot is supposed to be secret and people really resent being identified. That's why the whole voter ID thing was more a tactic to suppress participation, rather than make it expensive.
    That older people mainly vote for Republicans is, IMHO, another canard.  It's designed to tell Democrats that their vote is not worth while because all their older neighbors will cancel it out.

    We organize governments to provide benefits and prevent abuse.
