FAIRFAX, Va. — A record-breaking season for voter registration drives ends Monday in nearly half the nation's states, closing the books on a process that has helped Democrats and hurt Republicans in many states crucial to the fortunes of Barack Obama and John McCain.
Democrats have added more than 800,000 voters and Republicans have lost 300,000 in eight of the most tightly fought states in the presidential race: Florida, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Colorado, Iowa, Nevada, New Mexico and New Hampshire.

Doug Lewis, executive director of the Election Center, which represents state and county election offices, expects an all-time high, surpassing the 177 million registered in 2004. "It's going to be a tsunami of voters," he said.
GOP officials admit Democrats did a better job registering voters, but they say Republicans are better at getting voters to the polls.
Translation: Republicans are better at SUPPRESSING the VOTE and STEALING ELECTIONS!!!
