You have the right to vote. If you choose to waive that right, a vote will be appointed to you.

How bad is this? Pretty bad.

Bush administration lawyers argued in three closely contested states last week that only the Justice Department, and not voters themselves, may sue to enforce the voting rights set out in the Help America Vote Act, which was passed in the aftermath of the disputed 2000 election.

Because, yeah, I really trust John Ashcroft to protect my voting rights. I'm trying to decide what else to quote, but really, it's all appalling.
