Rick Hasen's (UC-Irvine law school) provides one stop shopping for 1. results of appeals to state and federal courts on recent voting laws (mostly won by the good guys, from our pov)
2. all constitutional conundrums, including effects of unscheduled natural disasters,
3. reliable reports on  efforts by rogue individuals or organized groups to suppress votes or misinform voters,  like True the Vote is your friend when discussing True the Vote (and its offshoots). It will help you to know your enemy:
1. whether it is in your state
2. whether the news of its effectiveness has been greatly exaggerated
3. and info need to be accurate about what you say about them (as they like to take people to court, usually states, but who knows. )

Below the orange twisted pretzel logic of the kind it uses are some of the articles from about True the Vote that  

For articles, useful key words are "chicanery," "voting wars" and "true the vote".

The links below are for two articles from American Prospect that the blogger, Rick Hasen, prof. at UC Irvine, has indicated as must reads or even, would have liked to written him itself.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
