|The Pew Center on the States hosted an election post-mortem conference to discuss voting issues. During one panel focused on the long lines and voting difficulties many Americans faced this election, Republican campaign consultant Scott Tranter laughed off the idea that bipartisan support for election reform could ever be achieved. Tranter noted that, as campaign staffers, 'we want to do everything we can to help our sides,' even when that means longer lines or voter ID laws: I don't hold out any hope that there's going to be any grand bipartisan agreement on voter ID laws, or you know, Internet voting or whatever it may be to alleviate some of these problems, because at the end of the day, a lot of us are campaign professionals and we want to do everything we can to help our sides. Sometimes we think that's voter ID, sometimes we think that's longer lines, whatever it may be.|
