Smooth Sailing in Virginia in First Election with New Photo ID Law

Yesterday, Virginia saw its first election with the newly enacted Photo ID requirements implemented as a result of legislation passed in 2013. A Special Town Election held in Farmville in Central Virginia was administered with the Photo ID requirements and we are hearing it went quite smoothly. Virginia State Board of Elections Chairman Charlie Judd was on hand to observe the first election under the new law and commented that things went smoothly and that “voters were aware and came prepared.” Judd described the conduct of the election as “flawless” and even got to see a voter apply for and receive a free photo ID on the spot in the General Registrar’s office. So much for the liberal alarmist claims of disenfranchisement and voter suppression.

Campaign finance reformers knifed in the back by academic studies

Campaign finance reformers have had a tough go of it lately. A near decade-long losing streak at the Supreme Court has been compounded by the demise of public financing for presidential campaigns. Most view proposed fixes, like Harry Reid’s constitutional amendment, as cynical ploys to motivate low-information voters with Pavlovian missives about evil industrialists. Even supposed supporters pay only lip service while calling for “big, fat checks.”
