Call in to speak with the host
Heritage Foundation policy analyst, Hans Von Spakovsky, shares “The REALLY, Real, Deal” on why federal election reform imposed upon the states is a disastrous idea. The recent 2012 election reported that voters in several states, especially Florida and Ohio, waited in extraordinarily long lines at the polls; with some waiting nine hours. Citizens also dealt with shorter early-voting periods, confusion over whether they needed to present photo ID and there were reports of uncounted ballots. Currently, Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) is on the trail championing President Obama's election night call to "fix" the problems voters faced at the polls. In a recent editorial in USA Today, http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2012/11/26/voter-registration-election-reform/1728531/, Hans Von Spakovsky argues that elections should be left with the states. Get the scoop on where voter reform is headed and share the conversation with a friend. Hans von Spakovsky is a senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation and a former member of the Federal Election Commission. He is also the co-author of Who's Counting? How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk.
