    slow down the voting process and create long waits, which is the intentional purpose of this provision of the bill.

    Republicans want to create chaos, and discourage voting by the poor, and working public who can't take time off from work to vote.

    I think these idiots are going to be unpleasantly surprised when their own base is also inconvenienced.  It could backfire on them.

    In the time it took Adam Lanza to reload, eleven children escaped. What if...

      I agree that it's going to slow down voting in some cases, and that I fail to see how that's going to help their base.
      Frankly, given that many of the heavily Democratic districts in the state are populated by college-educated voters the complication isn't going to slow things down nearly as much as it is out in the rural areas where Billy Joe Bob has to ask for help figuring out how to mark the boxes Fox News told him to.

      (Full disclosure: I took my lawnmower to Billy Joe Bob last week and he couldn't fix it, so I'm a bit biased).
