A fraud is being perpetrated on the voters, and it's the idea that "vote fraud" is a problem.
Ever since Red states got all concerned about vote fraud, it has been painfully obvious that what they are really after is making sure that only the Fox News demographic, angry old white men, can meaningfully vote in their elections.
The writeup at Daily Kos has a good summary of what's going on. "Voter Island" seems absurd now.... But hey, admit it: a year ago, if I had told you that Alabama would be closing all the DMV offices in black-populated parts of the state to make sure the true intent of their Voter ID law was fulfilled, you'd have told me I was being a paranoid loony.
