It’s good when friends help friends! I have been swamped this academic year, as my slow pace of blogging shows.
But this post by Doug Chapin, courtesy of Brian Newby, says in one post what I’ve been trying to tell folks for years. Placing early voting locations is not as easy as creating a pop up Halloween store. The combination of a short term lease and high end electrical, Internet, and accessibility needs make them as rare in some counties as Oregon sunshine in November.
Keep that in mind, Daily Kos and others, when criticizing officials. Scrutinize them, for sure, but make sure you also understand what constraints they may be operating under.
