On a tip from Stacy McCain on Twitter
Once again Husted is playing the voter suppression card, this time at the eleventh hour, in a controversial new directive concerning provisional ballots. In an order to election officials on Friday night, Husted shifted the burden of correctly filling out a provisional ballot from the poll worker to the voter, specifically pertaining to the recording of a voter’s form of ID, which was previously the poll worker’s responsibility. Any provisional ballot with incorrect information will not be counted, Husted maintains. This seemingly innocuous change has the potential to impact the counting of thousands of votes in Ohio and could swing the election in this closely contested battleground.
Damn those Republicans! Trying to stop democrats from cheating! Seriously though folks, I predicted this would happen. The whole “voter suppression” BS has been a ploy all along. They are seeking to scare people, and to delegitamize Romney when he wins.
