Trump-Clinton outcome may end up resting on a few thousand votes in a handful of states

Excerpt: 

THOUGH the presidential race is tightening, few observers are forecasting a replay of the 2000 election—when the vote was so close that it took 35 days and a Supreme Court decision to name a winner. But if predictions about what will transpire on November 8th are as reliable as last year’s dismissals of Donald Trump’s prospects in the primaries, the Trump-Clinton outcome may end up resting on a few thousand votes in a handful of states. In that event, three recent court rulings against Republican efforts to stack the electoral deck in their favour may play a role in staving off a President Trump. ...

[T]wo laws batted down last week imposed photo identification requirements on residents of Wisconsin, another swing state, and Texas, a reliably red one. Thirty four states request identification at polling places, and the rules in nine are characterised as “strict” by the National Conference of State Legislatures, a bipartisan advocacy group. But few have laws as unbending as Texas’s Senate Bill 14 (SB 14) or Wisconsin’s Act 23, both passed in 2011.

Voter ID lawsuits sowing confusion

Excerpt: 

Just 15 weeks before Election Day, lawsuits in nine states are raising the possibility that voters in crucial battlegrounds will face confusion over how and when to cast their ballots.

The lawsuits, mostly brought by civil rights groups, take aim at the flurry of election laws recently put in place by states, including requirements that voters provide photo identification or proof of citizenship.

In recent weeks, several courts have issued rulings blocking or upholding the laws, but those rulings have at times been contradictory, sowing even more confusion.
The suits, which have spent years in a maze of federal courts, focus mainly on laws passed by Republican-led legislatures after the 2010 midterm elections.
