    republicans in GA are doing away from polls on Sundays because Democrats have done a good job increasing turnout with "souls to the polls"

    Has anyone explained how curbside voting and providing water and snacks to people waiting to vote leads to more voter fraud?

    I know, shocking. Nevada's republican secretary of state finds no evidence of voter fraud...

    Nevada secretary of state finds no 'evidentiary support' for GOP election fraud claims

    I confess, in 2018 I went to cast my vote for Ted Cruz, but I was so thirsty waiting in line. A dude told me he'd give me water if I'd promise to vote for Beto. I didn't want to, but I could see no other way to save myself. So, I promised. And the water was so good. Ten minutes later I got into the voting booth, and I thought 'no one can see how I vote!' But, I knew I had promised. Even under duress, I have to keep my promises. So, I held my nose and cast my vote for Beto. Imagine if he had won! And all because that guy with the foresight to bring water had us all by the short hairs!

    The only ones cheating are the GOP, and they think everyone is....so they try to find ways to stop what they are doing...already.

    I understand that Republicans believe that the easier it is vote that it will costs them. That very well may be true but given that much of their base is elderly and rural these laws may very well backfire against them. Mail-in ballots have benefitted elderly and rural voting along with early voting so the more they restrict those they will end up restricting a parts of their base.

    While these laws do also harm urban poor areas that are mostly minorities they seem to do the less harm to suburban districts. The problem for Republicans is that those districts are far more purple than they are red and Democrats have been doing well in recent elections.

    Republicans are desperate and will continue to try to fix elections to their favor using whatever means they can. This isn't about god on Sundays or voter fraud, it's about Republicans being a minority of the population needing to maintain power.
