22. You do realize

that voting laws and election procedures fall under State purview don't you? Each State is responsible for regulating and providing the framework for voting, and any violations would first be handled by the State AG.

Yes, there are Federal election laws, but the actual mechanics of printing ballots, establishing polling places, determining voting days and times, etc. are up to each State's election laws and agencies. President Obama and Eric Holder can only address violations of Federal voting laws for the most part.
