Perhaps the Republicans are concerned about their federal government policies that led to these people losing their homes voting them out?
If it has to do with people changing their address, then they should be able to make an absentee vote.
Voting is compulsory in Australia, which is fairly unique. In the US it's optional - that automatically excludes an entire class of people, and those
who are apathetic, from making a decision.
Judging people on their competency to vote on whether they own a house or not signals a very sick democracy that seems to me more like a capitalist
And what do you mean by 'socialist' Democrat policy? Your Republican government recently took over Fannie and Freddie - the US government is the
biggest nationalizer on the face of the planet right now.
