Team Romney Mistakenly Leaks Victory Website

Were Election Projections Announced Too Early During Election Coverage? [OPINION]

The election is now behind us, and after getting a chance to cover the election results from the Pettis County Courthouse, I had the chance to finally watch the national coverage. I have to say, this will not be a rant on the results and whether I agreed with them or not because I think you have received enough of that in the last 24 hours.  However, some of you wanted to talk about the coverage, especially the national items.

Should You Have to Have a Photo ID to Vote? [SURVEY]

As of now, 17 states have laws requiring voters to present photo ID before voting. Some have suggested these regulations may act to disenfranchise poor and minority voters, who could be less likely to have such identification. Last month a judge in Pennsylvania blocked the state from enforcing its voter ID laws in the 2012 election.
