- A new rule that lets people register and vote the same day.
- Observers will be banned from polling stations.
- Deny absentee ballots that failed to have a box checked.
The other two points on Gateway Pundit's list are disturbing. I know in Colorado if you aren't registered by October 6, you aren't voting. This gives state officials time to actually make sure the registrations are proper. And not allowing observers in the polling stations ranks right up there with "not requiring identification" to vote. Arguments that people will be intimidated by observers is nonsensical. Every time I have voted, some people behind a desk have confirmed that I am indeed registered. Aren't these people more intimidating than some observer?
I might hold out hope that a suit could be brought concerning these other two points. But in the case of same-day registrations, it is probably too late. They are only open for a short period and during that period Bruce Springsteen will be performing at Ohio State in a huge voter registration effort.
Is there any doubt that, given the desperation showing in Ohio by the Democrats, that McCain still leads despite his national polling difficulties?
