Which brings us to phase three - verification. Fully aware of what is at stake, the Republicans' best hope is to suppress at the polls and then challenge in the courts. Their dominance in local government, where many of the initial decisions regarding voting rights are heard, means Democrats will always be fighting an uphill battle here.
Kerry must hope that it doesn't get this far. The Democrats have a far larger potential base than Republicans, but it is also less motivated. Those he was unable to excite to the polls through persuasion he must hope to get there through sheer organisation. If the result isn't close, then the Republicans cannot steal it.
This is Democracy!...this sounds like what I did in elementary school, if I didn't get my way I cheated.
