Move to 2012 and the numbers increase
A total of 70 ACORN employees in 12 states have been convicted of voter registration fraud. As documented in a July 2009 report by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, of the 1.3 million registrations Project Vote/ACORN submitted in the 2008 election cycle, more than one-third were invalid.

We’re going through grief here in Florida. Early voting lasted more than a week. We had long lines, none the less I cast my vote. The first Saturday lines wrapped around the building. I drove by several times that day and decided to show up early Sunday morning. Got there at 6:30, only had about a dozen people ahead of me. Was gone by 7:10, polls opened at 7.
Maybe Democrats are unable to get up early.
Long lines are racist!!!

I addressed your point. Your point (so it seems) is that polls closing early and not having accommodations for the elderly mostly or only affected Democrat voters. I say if anything, it's quite the opposite. Republicans are more likely to vote later since most of them have jobs compared to the non-working social program sucking Democrats who can vote anytime they desire.
What I would really like to see is your information to these claims. I want to know how many potential Democrat voters were turned away because they didn't accommodate the elderly.
Every single election, there are problems. You can't have millions of people voting without problems. For instance: a few years ago, I went to my polling place to vote. As usual, I go just before closing because by then, the place is empty. But that one election, I was greeted with a sign that stated the voting booths were moved to another location. This is because there was a teachers strike, and the UNION morons who set up the voting tables wouldn't enter the school. I didn't get to vote that election. I made no big deal about it because as I stated, no election goes without problems.
Did I call the papers and news organizations claiming there was a conspiracy of some kind? No. Because as I stated, elections come with problems. Democrats on the other hand would make all sorts of claims. They look for these problems and say that it's a conspiracy of some kind, even though all places of voting have equal Democrat and Republican workers.
You have articualted an issue quite well.
I am a poll official and we stay OPEN past closing time ONLY if there are folks in line AT THE CLOSING time and you are correct, they tend to be Republicans and small business owners that show up at the end.
This last election someone complained that I turned someone away without a valid ID. This was a lie. The fella I talked to asked if a passport was OK and I said yes. He did not have it with him so I explained that he could vote with a Provisional Ballet. This entails them going to the registrar's office later with a valid ID and his vote gets counted. This fella became irate and left never to be seen again. His Jamacian accent seemed odd as well. Yet, we had NO complaints from elderly or handicapped folks as we make the voting process painless as possible. We offer curbside voting at the polls but DO NOT go to the homes to accomodate elderly and handicapped voters.

What's interesting about the claims being made here is that it's the GOP who wants to change how voting is done... regardless of who people believe are standing in line to vote.

To try and imply the GOP is "sticking it" to their own by making these changes in voting is just plain ludicrous.

In New York, you can no longer buy AR-15 rifles, semi-automatic shotguns with a pistol grip(turkey gun) pistols with more than a 7 round magazine and a bunch of other insane restrictions. All happened overnight in an illegal procedure session. The shelves are bare of ammo and most guns. So yeah, buy all you can while you still can before it is too late.

I think ALL parties need to take look and see where they want to head so it's not an ailment restricted to one party or group.

That said, I'm not sure the tea-p will be considered so much a catalyst as they are a disturbing, radical expression and frustrations of their own personal choice. To me, this is why they can make claims they even "embrace democrats" when in fact, they only embrace their own philosophy, which is normally very focused and single minded for their benefit. As an example, they want SS benefits cuts along with Medicare, so long as it doesn't affect THEIR SS or Medicare benefits at present. This one simple point makes them no different than any other party.

I still say if these groups really believe in what they're preaching, they should be able to stand on their own without hijacking the machine of another party. They really should stick to their claims and stand on their own two feet.

I joined the NRA for life in 1978. If it weren't for the NRA, we'd have lost ALL our guns, long ago, and if it comes right down to it, you antigun idiots can(and WILL) be killed by the millions, if you force us to do so, in order to keep our freedoms. Bring it on, you wanna be Hitler bastards.

What they actually want is for workers to drive to their home with the voting machine and have them vote at their kitchen table.

Voting couldn't be any easier than it is today. They mail out flyers explaining each issue and candidate, they mail out a sample ballot or you can find one online. Extended voting hours, vote by mail, I mean, what more can they want?

I'm against all these simplified voting measures today because it seems the easier we make it, the more less informed voters turn out. I think we need to head in the opposite direction so it's a pain in the azz to vote and only those who really, really care about our country can vote.

People today know so little about politics and issues, yet they come out and vote. They believe it's their patriotic duty. Well, if you don't know the issues and policies, then the most patriotic thing you can do on election night is stay home.

I disagree. If not for the NRA, the pro second amendment vs. anti second amendment battle would have already come to a head. We would now be post revolution, and have much fewer liberals.
