    ..and being a good citizen all around..

    It took us 3 hours to get her vote cast and it was worth every
     worth every moment of that day.

    She was born in 1919 I think, and was the first woman in her family to vote in a Presidential Election.

    ..but the first part of your comment, while I too want the GOP tactics to back fire on them, is aimed at people that the GOP does not care about hurting either.

    The GOP is calculating that if they make voting more difficult it won't matter that it also hurts republicans, they are ruthless enough to go for the odds that favor them.

     I get what you're saying but don't hope that it takes elderly republicans to cause those responsible for disenfranchising voters to bring it to light.

    I hope that those republican violators get caught by the laws that they break and serve time for it.
