The devil is in the details. That’s a common expression often used in legislative bodies. Legislation is complicated. Advocates and opponents can make all kinds of claims about what a proposal does or does not do, often without fear of contradiction. Even some lawmakers can’t be bothered with the actual reading of bills that go on for dozens of pages in complex, often arcane, legal language.
Yet it’s the little things that matter. In this instance: Election Day voting hours, rules for poll observers, mail-in ballot requirements, drop boxes. What one side calls “election reform” can really be a bold attempt to skew the results by discouraging voters.
