SALTER – Why’s early voting such a threat to state GOP?

By: Magnolia Tribune - March 16, 2009

Why’s early voting such a threat to state GOP?

What has been missing from this debate by the Senate Republicans who killed voter ID is the offer of any specific examples of early voting fraud. What examples of voter fraud generated solely by early voting can they produce from the 31 states that offer some form of early voting?

In the Southeast, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Tennessee all permit no-excuse, in-person early voting at election offices or other satellite locations. The GOP carried every one of those states except Florida.

Getting voter ID in Mississippi would have been well worth the compromise of early voting. But that’s not going to happen now.

Democrats are bulletproof on the voter ID issue now – thanks to Senate Republicans who cavalierly made them bulletproof .
