Daily Kos: Keeping people off the voter rolls

Daily Kos: Keeping people off the voter rolls

Kos echoes my thoughs exactly:

Too many people are singularly obsessed with Diebold machines, not noticing that black boxes aren't necessary to keep people from voting.

The Conyers report is quite depressing, yet none of it had anything to do with electronic voting machines. It was stuff like inaccurate felon lists, not enough machines in urban districts forcing people to wait in line for up to 8 hours to vote, while in conservative-leaning suburbs, voters were in and out in 15 minutes, thugs outside of polling places, Republican poll observers making bullshit challenges to slow down the lines, ensuring that absentee ballots going to Dem-leaning areas were "lost", and so on.

Voter integrity issues run far wider and deeper than just electronic voting machines.
