    PA: Overturned OH: overturned FLA: same. And take it from me, this attempted suppression only motivates minorities.

      I'm talking about the general program of suppression by any means - destroying voter registration forms; disinformation about polling dates, hours, and locations; limiting voting hours in blue areas and at times that typically favor Democratic constituencies; and of course, the usual program of voter roll purges targeting minorities.  That's going to net them hundreds of thousands of votes at least.

      First, on the ballot Mitt's 1st, then there's half a dozen indies and 3rd party candidates, and Obama's last.

      Second they've changed lots of the precincts and shrunk their numbers, especially in blue zones, so there are fewer places to vote and many of them are new this year.

      Third they'll be shorting voting machines in blue areas. Remember the 10 hour voting lines around Kenyon College in 2004.

      Fourth they're limiting the early voting hours considerably even though they've been forced to hold them open.

      That's just what I know personally. I don't know what might be expected on registration challenges on election day. So far there aren't reports of anything at the in-person early voting.
