You should quit while your only behind. Now you are just making a fool of yourself, something that you seem to be proficient at.

It's election fraud.
Other than TheOnion satire article where has this happened? I do not know about your voter registration card but mine tells me the polling location I go to vote and I can look up news and election board websites for when the elections take place.

The fairness doctrine only applied to radio. If it had applied to broadcast tv news and enforced then foxnews would have never came into existence. Foxnews filled the void for opposing viewpoint. Besides that ..making it only apply to news is kind of useless when it doesn't apply to other entertainment and education media. I am not for forcing media outlets to play both sides even though I think they are the ones that actually influence or try to influence the elections.

It's election fraud.
Other than twits on social media (from both sides) who post BS memes about when to vote, what person with two brain cells to rub together, wouldn't either look at their voter registration, and or the local newspaper, and/or call city hall?

They have moved my registered voting place several times, and while I made use of the early voting at the fire hall, I knew where I was registered for election day voting.

Our voting areas, both early and registered, post signs as to what is required to vote: picture ID.

Complicated to be sure, very hard to get, and one has to take out a small mortgage to get one *sarcasm alert.

Many states and/or localities will provide them at either minimal charge ($5 around here) or no charge at all for certain groups. Available at a DMV office or satellite, county and city clerks offices, and then there is ETHRA or KAT around here, that will come and pick you up and take you there, free of charge. Most cities have these services, just a phone call away.

Yes, it is such a hardship to be able to provide proof you are eligible to vote, and even harder to know when and where to do so. Perhaps in the minds of those who claim to want to help the 'oppressed', where planting seeds of discontent is too their benefit.

Back to the subject,,,;

I fear this would be much like getting a traffic ticket for an "illegal lane change." Something subjective and completely up to the judgement of the arresting officer.

You will have to go to court and prove your innocence.

Does that mean that you want the MSM on TV to give up their 95% advantage over their rival FOX?

Or does it just mean that you want the Radio air waves to change?

Never mind, I know the answer.

It's election fraud.
So who is doing this? Are the democrats doing this to unsuspecting Republicans, That's terrible! I guess I will just hope and pray
that the Republicans are able to find their correct voting places.

I also hope they are able to find their car keys, and their mail box.

That is precisely why the left is so adamant about taking away our 2nd Amendment. If they don't have to worry about an armed populace, who will stop them when they attack the 1st?
