Meanwhile, a few Republican-dominated areas -- Warren and Butler counties in Southwest Ohio -- have voted to extend their voting hours into evenings and Saturdays.

In those counties, Republicans voted with Democrats to extend the hours, whereas Republicans in counties where Husted has broken a tie had voted against extending hours.


You're arguing with a brick. The process is fair and equal, two Democrats and two Republicans vote, and Democrats have even voted with Republicans on those "Republican" counties with extended hours. But when you give a liberal a fair and equal chance, they will still argue that you got more than they did. Your facts and data mean nothing in this thread.

You just made the point for the "liberals." As you said above, the Dems in Republican counties voted WITH the Republicans to extend voting hours. In other words, even when it would logically result in more Republican votes, how the Democratic election officials voted showed their commitment to open, honest elections granting the best access for voters no matter their affiliation. In other words, you just explained that the Dems acted ethically, morally and in the spirit of the Constitution, whereas the Republicans acted immorally, unethically and spit on the Constitution by trying to limit opposition voting.

Yes that's right. It's clear what happened and why it's unfair.
Or it should be.

2 Dems 2 Reps in charge, voted for the Republican district to have longer hours.
Typically, it's a bipartisan, and both are (typically) in favor of doing anything
to get more people to the poles.

*This is why the tinsy tiny rightwing fringe
minority in the US, (but a majority on ATS) are played to
with incredulous headlines and relentless Obestigations (Obama investigations )
Because.... Y'all vote.

Back to the disenfranchisement.

So when the time came to extend hours for the Dem district, the two republicans said no.
Nice huh? Just no, because we are gonna cheat.
And because no one else in the country votes,
old people and crazy people win much more than they should demographically.
Brought to you by Karl Rove's plan for an Nationwide permanent Rep. Majority .
Yay team!

I'm laughing at this thread because the author of the esteemed "Game of Thrones" book series and tv show actually thinks our votes count anyway...

Now that's some real humor.
