Well, folks, here's new one in voter suppression. If shortening hours, closing polling places, requiring specific forms of ID (gun licenses, say, but not college student ID), fingerprinting, not giving correct information to people at wrong polling places, holding on to mail-in ballots or sending out just plain misleading packets (ala Koch Brothers)….just tell folks that their vote doesn't really count anyway.

"Again, the idea is to make voting a troublesome and an almost unnecessary act that in the big picture isn't worth the effort. “Maybe not this time” we'll say, due to that 20 minute drive to the other side of town where we’ll wait in a 3 hour line……

…...There’s no shame in it, your vote is statistically unlikely to affect the outcome of an election. "

Speaking of those students having a tough time voting where they attend college….why not just tell 'em  "forget about voting…we don't even want you to register."

Later, she added: “If it’s not done the way we did it back in 2012, I’m not—I’m not good with it.”
