Indiana voters, get your paperwork in order

And especially women Riverdaughter explains why:

IN has Republican-instigated Voter ID laws designed to disenfranchise Democrats, and especially women.

I think a voter supression that targeted all democrats would work better for the goopers. It may affect more women, but if the idea is to win then why would GOP operatives halve their chances?

but everyone. Women may be more likely to have mismatches but anyone who's moved and forgotten to register a change of address, anyone who is new to the area, anyone who has forgotten where their polling place is, etc.

Despite what RD says, ID laws don't disproportionately affect women. They affect everyone.

Focuses on women, is because the law requires that your voter registration matches your state issued ID. Women are the ones who change their information(like last names), and if Obama is wanting to put a dent in Clinton's popular vote count, it would be by challenging women at the polls, who are more likely to have unmatched info.

Well she is in a way*, but the key part, is that is would be wise, if undemocratic, for Obama's poll watchers to challenge a lot of women at the polls, to bring down Clinton's popular vote total.

*The laws do effect everyone, and they are horrid. They will disproportionately affect women, who get married and change their names, working class and elderly who are more likely to not drive. Funny that, it's mostly Clinton's base.
