By attempting to shut down early voting sites:
Suzanne Rucker, chairwoman of the Cumberland County Republican Party, told the Board of Elections on Tuesday that early voting costs too much money to justify all of those locations, especially when turnout is normally poor during the one stop period.
Ralph Reagan, who was chairman of the local GOP in 2008, was a big critic of early voting. He called it a burden on election officials and an opportunity for ill-informed citizens to vote. He hated Sunday voting, too, which he said benefited Democrats over Republicans in Cumberland County.
Or, could it be because those "ill-informed citizens" put Barack Obama so far ahead during the early voting of 2008?
