    The new voter so-called "ID Bill" doesn't allow provisional ballots cast outside of the voter's precinct to be counted. Then of course there's the whole ID thing in the first place. It also takes away same day registration, cuts early voting opportunities, etc. Should the bill stand in court, we're going to have to really figure a dynamite absentee ballot effort for students because the law makes that method much easier. But for now these new restrictions are not in effect. Those battles will have to be fought another day.
