Indiana's recently-passed voter ID law, which I strongly support, is being challenged in the Supreme Court. Those who oppose the law brought out two older women, to try to show disparate impact for older Hoosiers. There's just one little problem.
One of the women is registered to vote in two different states.
Faye Buis-Ewing, a snowbird, probably did not vote twice, in two different locations. No, this situation has a monetary explanation. For a short time, she double-dipped on the state homestead tax exemptions. Being registered to vote was a requirement for claiming homestead status in Florida.
So, tell me, what is stopping a person like this from casting two ballots? Or, even if casting one ballot, choosing which one she wants to cast, based on where the vote is going to be more important?
