GOP Voting Challenges Halted
A plan by Republicans to challenge new registrations by some voters has been halted. A federal judge blocked Franklin County Board of Elections from conducting the hearings. About 2400 registrations were to be thrown out because the return address was not readily verifiable. I am predisposed to not trust the intentions of the GOP in this case. They are pushing hard to suppress many new registrants, who by a 5 to 1 margin are Democratic. There is also the case of shredded registration forms in Nevada. They were obtained by Republican canvassers and are now found in the trash.
