Just a couple for you today. Over at Plum Line, I wrote about the latest in the War on Voting, which is actually a golden oldie in the war on voting: claims that the Minnesota Senate race in 2008 was stolen by ex-felons. What I should have added more explicitly is that it should be really easy for (all) ex-felons to vote. I'm much more agnostic about felons currently serving time...I can see the argument either way. But once you've served your sentence? Of course the franchise should be restored.
And then at PP I did one on the Hawaii Senate race -- or, more precisely, at the lack of very much visible liberal interest in the Hawaii Senate primary compared with intense conservative interest in lots of primaries.
