1. New election laws being pushed by the Republicans
They would require a photo ID (not including a student ID). Even though they would give a state ID free upon request, this presents problems in getting to the DMV and paying for the required birth certificate to get the ID. They also want to end our same-day registration and lengthen the time one must live in a place before voting there (currently 10 days). All this would cost millions to implement for virtually no use in preventing voter fraud. Sheesh.
