THANKS FOR REC'ING! Virginia has emerged as one of the tightest swing states in the 2008 presidential election. Every vote will count.

Especially the votes of young Virginians. According to the latest state statistics, 42% of Virginia's more than 284,100 new registrants are college-aged, between 17 and 25 years old. An astounding 50,000 new voters in Virginia are 18 years old.

But new reports are showing that the rights of college students to vote in Virginia are still being challenged by election officials using an exceedingly narrow interpretation of state residency laws, potentially disenfranchising tens of thousands of young voters.

2. Evidently, the pukes are not doing this at Liberty "university" where they are cancelling
classes and busing the students to do their holy duty and vote for Insane.

I grew up in VA when they were against busing, but those were different times.

The theft is in full operational mode and will be successful unless everything is done to even the score. Someone should go Charles Whitman on their campus come Nov. 4.

3. Christian thing to do.
This massive effort to disenfranchise voters is sickening. Republicans are simply traitors to the spirit of democracy.
