Early and often, Part 3

October 15, 2008

The “early voting” sites are opening in Gary, East Chicago and Hammond after a back-and-forth court battle, and shame on Lake County Republicans for trying to make it a little tougher on the predominating Democrats in those cities. Sometimes partisanship is called for, and sometimes it isn’t. But also shame on the Democrats and their hyperbolic sputtering:

Republicans are trying to stall voting here, and that would be disenfranchisement,” said Gary Mayor Rudy Clay, a Democrat. “Because Obama has an opportunity to win this state, we have had to jump over all these hurdles.”

It’s disenfranchisement if people can’t vote early? Of the lazy or clueless, maybe, those who can’t figure out how to vote absentee or find a half hour out of 12 to exercise their franchise.
