    You want to outlaw absentee balloting? :)

    The focus of GOP efforts towards voter fraud is a red herring which has to do with stopping people of a certain persuasion from voting in person. I'd say there is a much greater threat to an honest vote by having wireless voting machines, and wireless/electronic reporting which has been proven to be susceptible to manipulation.

    Arrested ≠ convicted.

    Also, one wonders why adequate provision hasn't been made to take polling to the care homes rather than using absentee ballots. My father's care home used to pack their vans full of residents who were ambulatory enough to vote, but the county actually brought in election officials to the home to validate the absentee ballots of those who could not make it to the polling station. It's bad enough being in a nursing home without being disenfranchised due to disability.
