|Voters in the GOP-run (not state-run) Iowa Caucuses next Tuesday will be able to register to vote right then and there,and then cast their vote on a paper ballot without having to show any form of Photo ID.Those paper ballots will then be counted publicly, at the 'precinct', with the results of the voting at each site announced to everyone right then and there, before they are sent to a central clearing house to be compiled and announced to the media.Those are all among the best, most transparent, and most reliable election practices we're aware of, even while they are all things that Republicans have fought virulently against -for years -when it comes to elections in which Dem voters may be allowed to participate.Despite that great news for voters in Iowa (at least voters in the Repub caucuses,if not in their general elections), we are still left to conclude: Hypocrisy thy name is GOP.|
