    A good political adviser should be prepared for any change in the circumstances, especially since what happened was perfectly legal..

    If this ruling effected everyone equally and was fairly applied then it wouldn't seem to make much difference.

    If 70% of the voters prefer and use mail in balloting and that is what they use in elections, to suddenly slam on the brakes and prevent them from using it is the penultimate example of the opposite of fairness and equal application. By its very design and purpose one cannot help but target that 70% with this ruling. To pretend othwewise is either naive or disingenuous.

    Perhaps it is those 70% who don't know how voting works, apart from mail in ballots, who were naive and disingenuous. Or maybe they just didn't feel strongly enough to bother.

    Obviously they do know how voting works because they did it in the past.

    Apparently they weren't completely informed how the voting system works if they understood that the only way to vote was to mail it in. Obviously some better informed voters had no problem.

    You operate from the assumption that people were kowledgable about the sudden change and knew of it.

    There were obviously those who did vote so they were knowledgeable enough to cast their ballots.

    Perhaps the Democrats are just bitter because they weren't as good as getting out the stupid people vote, which was done so well during the last presidential election.
