In a bitter fight, Colorado Democrats recently muscled through the Statehouse a massive elections reform bill that allows voters to register up until Election Day and still cast their ballots.
Its the latestand most substantialdevelopment in a nationwide Democratic Party effort to strike back at two years of Republican success in passing measures to require identification at polling places and purge rolls of suspect voters.
Democratic-controlled states like California, Connecticut and Maryland also all have sought to make it easier to cast a ballot as late as possible. They recently passed versions of same-day voter registration measures, which traditionally help younger and poorer votersthe sort who lean Democratic.
Undaunted, the GOP is aggressively fighting the efforts.

And yet our men and women serving this country overseas can’t get their vote counted!
Go ahead Democrats....keep devaluing our American citizenship.
Democrats are destroying this country.

This is designed to expand VOTE FRAUD!!
This has NOTHING to do with “voting rights”.
Until Republicans learn to oppose this action as plainly as I have above, we are destinned to the ash heap of history.

The GOP should call their bluff. Meet their demand for same day registration with same day, on-site voter ID cards, complete with picture... and a hefty criminal sentence for repeat voting.

It’s racist to let people only vote once per election.
