From Suppression to Enfranchisement in Ohio

I’m sure the Republicans will find a way to fuck things up for the less fortunate – after all, how can you pull yourself up by your bootstraps without Republicans to knock you down to your knees? – but an Ohio judge ruled yesterday that the homeless can register park benches as valid addresses when voting.  He also ruled that a vote cannot be discarded due to poll worker errors.

So it looks at the moment as though a whole lot more people will be getting to vote and have their sovereignty respected – in Ohio, anyway.
