3. pretty much a wash
Brunner enforced the law as she read it; the Supreme Court read it differently.

I don't think many people here think that anyone should be denied an absentee ballot solely for failing to check a box on a form -- although it may be tempting to think otherwise when the voters in question are probably McCain supporters. However, Brunner's interpretation of the law seems reasonable.
