    Confused by the graphics (5.00 / 1) (#1)

    Why is the voter in the booth standing on her toes?

    How will the voter outside the booth vote without arms?

    What is the robber carrying.  Laundry?  A bag of money?  Doesn't look like a ballot box.  Regardless of his criminal stature, I hope he can get the orthopedics he needs.

    there's no representation of ethnic diversity!  You'd think that on a post about voter problems, you'd not want to suggest that only solidly black people will  be allowed access to the machines.

    aren't one race or another. It's a black and white vs. color graphic. The theme is "vote stealing" -- that's the point of the sack. It holds votes. The post is about problems at the voting booth -- voter suppression tricks.
