I am going to harp on the Florida Elections of 2010.
I was one of the %41 of eligible voters who went to the polls. In recent weeks there have been many complaints about how the Republicans are making it harder for the average Floridian to vote. I guess that if you cut the early voting days down to one week, from two weeks, that will put a crimp in some people plans on when to vote.
I can even see how some people might get upset over the idea that just because they recently moved into town and were not able to register a month in advance of the election they might not want to vote on a provisional ballot.
There might be some truth to their complaints that it will be harder to vote. My response is that “if the new voting rules are that much harder than the old one, why did %59 of the eligible voter NOT VOTE“?
Get real here people. If you don’t vote you got no say in the results.
As for the Wake UP Florida group… why were you asleep in the first place?
