Beyond Bernie: Voter suppression in New York

Is New York's voter registration law defensible? The U.S. Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision from 43 years ago (cited downthread by jcohn88) ruled that it was constitutional: its purpose "is to inhibit party ‘raiding,’ whereby voters in sympathy with one party designate themselves as voters of another party so as to influence or determine the results of the other party’s primary. This purpose is accomplished...not only by requiring party enrollment several months in advance of the primary, on the theory that ‘long range planning in politics is quite difficult,’ but also by requiring enrollment prior to a general election." - promoted by hesterprynne

Charlie Baker and the rest of the MA Republicans are going to have a hard time holding on to their dignity, let alone their positions, in a national GOP run by Donald Trump. Yesterday's results: Democrats: 1,197,120 votes, GOP: 626,799 votes, i.e. an almost 2-1 margin. - promoted by Bob_Neer
