    What the written law says is irrelevant today to most judges. It is all about their agenda and what they can do to make them feel good.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Massachusetts governor signs early voting bill | Boston Herald

    BOSTON — Massachusetts voters will be able to register online and cast their ballots up to 11 days before Election Day under a new law designed to update the state's election laws.

    The goal of the new law — which also lets 16- and 17-year-olds pre-register to vote — is to encourage more participation at the ballot box and fully embrace digital technology.

    Early voting will apply to all November state elections excluding primaries beginning in 2016 and will also permit early voting by mail.

    Not in this case. I get that he labelled this bill not a tax before he labelled it a tax, but if a bill is a tax, then it must originate in the House.

    Nope, the opinion was based on enumerated constitional federal power. Upholding that power is not at odds with conservatism. Care to try again?

    This guy should not be on the ballot. The law is quiet clear. This judge had no reason to overturn the states decision.

    Good faith mistake what the hell is that. it is either filled out correctly or it isn't. he either has all the legit signatures required by law or he doesn't.
    what is the purpose of law if no one is going to follow it. ol i am sorry the law only applies to us non elite people.

    It is actually somewhat more complex than that. I recommend a visit to SCOTUSBlog and read up on the ruling.

    You don't seem to notice that the votes are not counted until Election Day.

    Well, no problem, just get your appeal in front of a friendly democrat judge, and presto! Unless of course, you happen to be a Republican.
