Those hoping for that “right turn” will be pleased to see this article from North Carolina.^http://www.newsobserver.com/2013/08/17/3115208/college-students-will-have-to.html^The Republican dominated state capital has passed laws making it much harder for students, particularly out of state students, to vote in NC.In one college town that once had two precincts in which to vote, there is now, barring legal challenges, only going to be one in which the college students/staff AND the townspeople to vote. Witnesses said they had to wait in lines several hours during the last two election, now they’ll have to wait even longer.These types of measures, taken in the name to prevent a miniscule amount of on site voter fraud, is going to make it harder for hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions, of legal voters from being able to do so unless they are very educated and prepared. This will effect republicans and libertarians as well, but the conservatives in Raleigh don’t mind if a few of their own are suppressed as long as a large number of liberals are suppressed.If this was being done in a ‘blue state’, I would be equally outraged. NO legal voter should be forced to jump through hoops or stand in lines for hours just to vote. Early voting is a tool for the handicapped, for those who have to be out of town, for the elderly, and those who have to work on election day. Some of these laws passed in NC will be costing taxpayers money as NC will be going to court to defend their actions, some of which fly in the face of decisions previously made in SCOTUS.It may be legal, but it is neither ethical or moral and is being done for reasons that are dishonorable and self serving.Respectfully,C.
