Subject: RE: BS: the truth will out
The word "competency" just jumps out at me whenever I see it in a discussion on voting. The competency involved should be related to choosing the best candidate - judging character and evaluating arguments and positions - not to the ability to figure out some arcane ballot or voting machinery, or how to keep from being purged from the voting roles.

The question that will not be answered in any of the inquiries into the last election is whether or not people in a position to do so took actions that made it more difficult for specific population groups to register their choice for president.
