This is what Voter Suppression Looks Like
In dozens of states, GOP-controlled lawmakers have passed a cut-and-paste menu of voting laws that selectively disadvantage the working poor, minorities, naturalized citizens, and young people. These include:
Enacting strict photo ID laws that exclude common forms of ID and add time and expense to the voting process
Placing burdensome requirements on voter registration drives
Eliminating same-day voter registration
Eliminating pre-registration programs for high school students 16 and over
Invalidating voter registration forms due to trivial clerical errors
Automatically purging eligible voters from the rolls
Making cuts to voting hours during evenings and weekends, thus creating long lines at the polls
Eliminating out-of-precinct voting
Closing or moving polling places that serve minority communities and students
Attempting to block vote recounts in very tight races
