  •  Just have the Federal Gov't take over elections (4+ / 0-)

    It's kind of quaint that the running of elections is treated like the organizing of a church picnic -- sweet retired folks seem to be a big part of the labor force.  But with what the Supreme Court seems about to do, the simple answer would be to put all voter registration and all elections under Federal control, with a uniform set of rules nationwide.

    There's another reason for national rules:  If the National Popular Vote movement goes into effect, the total number of votes nationally for President will determine who goes to the White House.  Up to now, it didn't matter much if one state had stricter voter requirements than another, since each state's electoral votes were chosen as a block.

    We're all pretty strange one way or another; some of us just hide it better. "Normal" is a dryer setting.
