....the fact that it’s voter suppression anymore.Two bills filed by Republican lawmakers seek to cut back early voting and eliminate same-day registration in North Carolina.Senate Bill 428, filed by Sen. Jerry Tillman, R-Randolph, would cut the early voting period from two weeks to one and would eliminate same-day voter registration.House Bill 451, filed by Rep. Edgar Starnes, R-Caldwell, goes even further. In addition to cutting early voting and same-day registration, it would also outlaw early voting on Sunday and straight-ticket voting.The Sunday ban, in particular, would affect popular “Souls to the Polls” voting drives at African-American churches.“I think Sundays just should be – some things you just shouldn’t do on Sundays, so I am just opposed to voting on Sunday,” Starnes said.You can practically see the hidden “those people” before the word “voting” in that sentence there. But again, Republicans are actively saying A) we make it too easy to vote in North Carolina, so we should probably put an end to it, because if you can’t vote during banker’s hours on a Tuesday, you don’t deserve to be a part of the body politic.http://www.balloon-juice.com/2013/03/29/north-carolinas-turn...
