    Well that kicks the preferred narrative in the teeth doesn't it?

    Untrue.

    Dems wanted election to be delayed and/or more outdoor polling venues based on covid. Republicans did whatever they could to prevent people having the option to vote.

    True.

    The members of the Milwaukee Election Commission are appointed by the Mayor of Milwaukee and confirmed by the Common Council. There was a dispute over whether to delay the election that was eventually resolved by the Wisconsin Supreme Court. I donít know that holding an election in April instead of June resulted in fewer Democrats and more Republicans voting, and neither does anyone else.

    ...just so you know....as much as 50% of the requests for mail-in ballots for our next state election have been rejected, due to new voting laws in Texas. Even the election administrators are disturbed the figures are so high. Making it harder for eligible citizens to vote is what I call voter suppression.

    What are the dominant reasons they’re being rejected?

    Yes, , and maybe the answer includes my other issue of curiosity, but are the rejected requests biased for any specific group? Is voting at polling stations the most common way to vote there?

    Here, mail in voting is so common it's taken for granted. Anything else seems restrictive to me. Standardized voting methods for national elections makes sense to me.

    From what Iíve read, Texas now requires the ballot application to match the driverís license number, state ID number or last four digits of the social security number the voter provided when they registered.

    oh hell no for “standardization.” Just one more Big Government creep.

    One’s state has to have the capacity to do what all other states do. Good luck with that.

    Yea, well it's pretty much a dead horse anyway, but national election, national rules. And simplified mail in ballots so everyone has a chance to vote regardless of polling difficulties like weather, work, and travel. Works just fine here. Hell yes. State and local elections can do what they want.

    Is it just because it's your favorite enemy, "big gobermt" or a better reason around voting fairness?

    But its not a national election! Every Presidential election has tons of local issues on the ballot. And other Elections, here anyway, are held at least twice a year that have NOTHING to do with national politics.Are you one of those people who only vote every four years?

    I do not favor ceeding one more inch of control to the Feds, taking it from the states. The feds can recommend standards but not impose them. I suppose The Feds can even throw shit tons of money at states who will do it the way they want it done as enticement, more stupid money going out, but any further step than that is wrong.
