How to talk about voting

/ 1 November 2004

I’ve been bothered lately by all of the language Republicans are using to talk about voting irregularities. Knowing that the Republicans have been working hard to suppress voting has meant their language sounds particularly hypocritical to me. Now there’s a great piece up at Democracy for America that goes into some detail about this whole issue. It’s definitely worth reading, because we need to make sure the Republicans don’t frame the issue in such a way that we end up, once again (like four years ago), looking like we’re being obstructionist for insisting on legal safeguards.
