Walker wants to end same-day registration.

Paul Weyrich back in 1980 was honest about it, "I don't want everyone to vote."

2. Oh, he'll drop this

As soon as somebody tells him that the federally-mandated alternative would be Motor Voter. He has to pick one or the other.

3. Maybe

that's why they closed and reduced hours at motor vehicle offices across the state. Preemptive strike.

7. That would cost $50 million dollars

This figure was mentioned at election observer training recently. I'm not sure if that is to set it up or to operate it annually. In either case, a significant expense to change to a system that will inconvenience many voters, even the ones Republicans like. The practicalities of this plan should be publicized widely.

4. Same Day

Not surprised at all here. It did not help that in this past election we did not even field a candidate against every state senator we recalled in 2011. The outcome of this past election is a bad deal for many people in this state.

5. Playing Defense against these guys (and girls)

is exhausting....

they keep creating ever more outrageous plots that would make a true conspiracy theorist blush.....

I was once a Republican...many, many moon ago....and I could never, in a million lifetimes, have predicted they would go this far into bat-shit-crazyland...(on a one-way ticket)

6. Progressive State

The truth is that we are a progressive state when we have a high presidential turnout. Democrats are the majority party. If we win the supreme court this April we can keep Walker and the State Legislature in check. With the supreme court election coming up we really need to go for that level of turnout. We have the turnout list from the most recent presidential election to go off of and that can help us out when turning out college students and other people who move a lot. The campaigns need to speak to a broader electorate than what we generally do in supreme court and off year elections.
