The co-sponsors of House Bill 75 and the state Republican Party should keep the post office in service for years if they decide to send by mail all of the apologies that they owe to the county clerks, county staff, election judges, poll watchers and ballot processing volunteers, not to mention the secretary of state and the thousands of Wyoming citizens whose votes they are trying to suppress.

There are dozens of studies on the rarity of voter fraud, the safety of the vote processing machines Wyoming uses, and the ways that instituting voter ID laws and restricting absentee ballots disenfranchise minorities, the disabled, rural voters and the working class. It’s all a simple Google search away, if anyone who cosponsored HB 75 or voted in favor of the recent Wyoming GOP resolution has the intellectual integrity to explore.
