  •  Same day reg comes to California in 2013 (3+ / 0-)
    There's also a lot more that California could do, like same-day registration. But you'll never see any news about people waiting in line in California until 2 in the morning.
    As an election officer same day voter registration makes me shake in my boots because the first time we do anything new there are always things that need to be tweaked - think voting machines etc.

    As I've said before, Debra Bowen is the best  SoS ever.  We need to franchise her to other states.  This last election I never had more than 5 people in line to vote, and everyone was saying how glad they were that they didn't live in Florida, Ohio, or Pennsylvania.

      thanks to early voting. Which of course is why our Secretary of Voter Suppression Jon Husted wanted to limit it as much as possible. Also, for you Ohioans out there, don't let Husted pat himself on the back about sending mail-in vote applications to every registered voter in the state. He was FORCED to do that as part of a deal struck with Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald who put his feet to the fire. Thank Ed. You may have the opportunity in 2014 to thank him by voting for him for governor to oust John Kasich (Ed is already a declared candidate for governor, and I think he'd be good. He just needs to let the women of the state know he's pro choice, which hasn't come up in his campaigns so far, in order to avoid a replay of 2010).

      Jon Husted is a dick.
