Voter suppression
 

I am saddened and angered to see Virginia jump on the voter suppression bandwagon.

Many if not most of the voters who use the absentee ballot are the elderly and the frail.

To have to comply with so many rules - things that should not be disqualifying - is a hardship for these people. 

And they'll never know their vote didn't count!

We know which party this group usually votes for and we know which party is pushing for the suppression.

It isn't too hard to figure out what's going on here.  To say that to leave out some detail constitutes voter fraud is a stretch to say the least.
