Your occasional reminder that in addition to the vast array of voter suppression tactics Republicans in power use to make the voting base as white, property-holding, and male as possible (inconvenient voting hours, documentation that's harder for non-rich to get, outright throwing people with Black and other minority-sounding names off the list of registered voters with 'CrossCheck', less flexibility for things like name changes that affect women who change names for or after marriage and trans people disproportionately)...

In many places there's simply no evidence that votes are counted accurately at all, and in Georgia the evidence one way or another is being actively destroyed: http://bradblog.com/?p=12358

(In others, especially urban areas, the votes may be countable but simply aren't counted, with higher proportions of allegedly spoiled ballots.)
