And this law would also affect military personnel. But it helps that there aren't major military installations in that state. The law is a nuisance. Even recognized, as I quoted above, by the republican body of students in the state.

Voting and voter registration should be made easier and more available, not restrictive, along with a proper voting system. I hope you, at least, agree with that?

So---in your view, different how?
Clearly, it doesn't take much for things to go over your head. That is nobody's but your problem.

So, what makes them different from the USA? All are republics, with representative government in place, not under a monarchy after all. What makes them different and gives more power to the people is... democracy.

So even if people are permanent residents, they couldn't vote if they were college students if their parents did not live there.

That's a great way to champion "Freedom"!

In states, parties clash over voting laws that call for IDs, limits on where college students can cast ballots

They are finding a lot, not all were voting in both places and there was no way to stop it.

Meanness is as meanness does and that is no ones problem but your own. The comment was uncalled for.

Any predictions on the middle east and the form of government they may adopt to be that of a republic, democrat form, or do you think they will stay a mob rule and be done with it?

The post by the way, in case you missed it, that I responded too, was a question regarding our spreading of democracy to the middle east.

America just has to do her part here, so, how well will she do it?

PS: we are a dufass for sticking our noses in where it doesn't belong.

You invited it with your "homework issues" so stop complaining.

Neither country I mentioned are in the Middle East. My point wasn't about spreading democracy in the middle east to begin with.

This is just more of the same.
Could you explain how it is suppressing voters?

Yet, that was the comments I was responding to, to the other poster, that you took and tried to do what exactly?

They should end all early voting!

That alone would end 90% of vote fraud.

The idea that college students should be able to take over the politics of a town just because they pay to be educated there, 8-9 months a year, and will never go back after 2-4 years, is absolutely ridiculous. Crushing this bill is about one thing only, to increase the turnout for college aged students who happen to vote Democrat (nothing to do with being democratic).

Make laws that actually force people to not game the system and the DEM's may end up losing every race in 2012. After all- students, minorities including illegals, unions and activists are all they have left.

Interesting considering the fact that shortly after my parents moved to S.C in 2009, I checked to see if they were still registered in NY and they weren't....

Aside from that, quite simply this isn't about stopping people from doing something that is already illegal, this is about stopping college kids from voting in the areas they spend most of their time simply because they don't vote the way some want. The sponsor of the N.H bill pretty much said that was the reason.
