This one was apparently largely done by Wal-Mart, although the practice is common across the corporate world.

The Good, The Bad and the Very Very Potomaniacly Ugly!

The Good! *Florida Democratic State Legislators* Take that Rick Scott. Two Democratic State Senators in the Sunshine State have introduced two bills that would re-institute the 14 days of early voting in Florida - that Governor Scott had reduced to only 8. Both bills could also increase the number of voting hours on each early-voting day. Unfortunately - Republicans control both chambers of the state legislature - but incoming Republican leaders have suggested that they would be amenable to changing voting laws in Florida. Let's hope that's the case - so that every Floridian that has the right to vote is able to in upcoming elections.
