I think it’s un-American to try to win an election by rigging the rules so that it’s harder for the other party to get out their vote:
During his keynote speech at an election law symposium at University of Toledo on Friday, Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted (R) claimed two recent court decisions restoring early voting on the last three days before the election was “un-American.”
It also makes it harder to accept the outcome of a close election if the other side made your voters stand in long lines. That’s what happened in 2004, and that is what early voting in Ohio is intended to prevent. Let’s have people express their will and let the chips fall where they may. But trying to win by making it hard to vote in densely populated areas is simply cheating. And cheating is supposed to be un-American. In any case, it’s wrong.
