    What goes on in one state..especially ones with majority Republican state legislatures will happen in another..so FLA, TX, AL, VA etc.

    Checked out NC's state legislature website and did a quick search using the word "election" for the 2013 session. Up pops SB666 (cannot make this up) :

    "AN ACT TO PROHIBIT DEPENDENCY DEDUCTIONS FOR QUALIFYING CHILDREN 2 WHO HAVE REGISTERED TO VOTE AT A DIFFERENT ADDRESS; CLARIFY 3 RESIDENTIAL ADDRESSES THAT MAY BE USED FOR VOTING; PROHIBIT 4 VOTER REGISTRATIONS THAT LACK REQUIRED INFORMATION; CLARIFY THE 5 RIGHTS OF ELECTION OBSERVERS; REPEAL SAME DAY VOTER 6 REGISTRATION; LIMIT EARLY VOTING TO TEN DAYS; AND ELIMINATE 7 SATELLITE EARLY VOTING SITES."

    This was filed before the S Ct. decision...and expect all of those "voter fraud" prevention bills to go into high gear.
