Ohio Limits Early Voting Hours In Democratic Counties, Expands In Republican Counties

http://thinkprogress.org/justice/201...ies/?mobile=nc

between this and the new voter ID law it shows that republicans know they can't win fairly, they have to rig the election however they can, here they change the hours for voting to get more republican votes and the voter ID law is to solve a problem that doesn't exist but will alienate more democratic voters than republican voters (think 10 recorded cases in the last decade)

Ohio has introduced a new tactic in their broader attempts to make it even harder for Democratic voters to get to the polls this year. Early voting stations in Ohio?s heavily Democratic counties will only be open between 8 am and 5 pm, while Republican counties have expanded their hours to allow voting on nights and weekends.

If you're not required to produce an ID there is little chance a fraud will be exposed.

That's why State Troopers don't just have a sign saying "honk if you are driving without a license."

Working people need more hours to get to the polls.

another example of taking a conversation down to a level of just stupid accusations, and ignoring that red states percentage wise use more welfare.

considering people have to be at the right polls and know the name and a situation would arise if someone went to vote and their name had already been checked as voted an issue would arise so no I do not see how voter id laws would restrict that due to the additional checks and the obvious nature of an issue if someone votes under someone else's name, not saying it doesn't happen, but I doubt it is that major of an issue
