    Given that on the first screen (where you actually vote), Webb's name did appear.  On the summary screen is where it was cut off.  I don't know that this hurt badly.  What I do know is that it's obscene that this "bug" was known about months if not years in advance (other candidates had their names chopped off as well, including Republican running against Democrat Jim Moran) and nothing was done about it.

    I think the voter suppression is the more likely angle - but guys let's just sit down and be honest with each other.  Gay marriage won the Ohio presidential election for Bush (that and mass voter suppression) and Gay marriage won the Virginia Senate election for Allen (that and voter suppression).  Bigots just won't sit by and let an opportunity go by to swipe at people who are different than they.  I don't know what to make of the fact that Allen polled 8-10 points worse than the amendment - bunch of Webb voters hate gays too.
