Cuidando el Voto

==>Voter Registration by Students Raises Cloud of Consequences - NYTimes. com

The practice of students registering to vote at their college address has set off a fracas in Virginia, after a local registrar incorrectly suggested dire consequences for students who register at college.

Huh. This could very well be a crucial issue down the line, since Obama has the college students' vote (as far as we know).

The Democrats aren't crying foul, not yet. A spokesperson for the Obama camp in Virginia said it appears to be a good-faith effort to convey state guidelines, not a politically motivated effort to stop voting by students.

But I'm thinking that behind the scenes they're scrambling to fix this. Or the should be.
