Nevada GOP Urban Vote Surpression Moving Full Steam Ahead

GOP demands that voters with errors on their registration cards use provisional ballots rather than fix the errors on their cards.

Here's the problem with provisional ballots: they may give voters the false impression that their vote is going to count on November 4. Federal law mandates that provisional ballots be offered, but the law says little about whether or how provisional votes should count in the tally. That's enough ambiguity for Republican lawyers to demand that urban ballots be disregarded. If the GOP has their way, provisional ballots are just another means of defrauding and brushing off urban voters.
