    or a member of a sleeper cell. Or maybe you like cats. All valid reasons you shouldn't be voting...

    Filibuster reform, 2013 - woulda, coulda, shoulda.

      that actual voter fraud is scarce to non-existent. I consider the check-in on the roll thing to be pretty darned foolproof. Someone might vote early and then forget (or intend to do fraud) and show up on election day. Either they are turned away because the roll says they already voted, or the election day ballot will be provisional. If there are two records of you voting, one of 'em will get tossed. And you might be in trouble.

      If the voter suppression laws hold through next year's primaries and election, I will be voting absentee. As I did before early voting was instituted. They still register the fact that I've voted, and I am still not able to vote again. Unless you show up to vote in the name/registration of somebody who's dead, no ballot-stuffing is going on.

      They just don't want likely Democrats to be able to vote, and that's plenty good reason for DoJ to intervene.

        Nothing in the law is going to stop "voter fraud", because there's not any to stop. This is about making it as inconvenient as possible for Democratic-leaning voters to vote.

        Voting absentee is a good way around all this - right up until they start Florida-style voter purges of "non-citizens" and "duplicate voters".
