Vote Early, Vote Often

People really are fired about about this election. A Democrat in Ohio has been accused of giving away crack cocaine for voter registrations and a Republican-affiliated firm has allegedly been destroying Democratic voter registrations in Oregon and Nevada. NPR has a similar (audio) story from Las Vegas.

Voting fraud is as old as voting, of course. Both parties are concerned with voter fraud since the margin of victory in the last presidential election was razor thin, and in the view of many, ultimately hijacked by the Republicans.

Both campaigns are tooling up for the post-election legal turmoil. NPR's All Things Considered has an audio report here.

(I've been listening to NPR more since my new cell phone picks up FM radio.)
