Voter Suppression prevalent in Red States

I think the average voter does not realize all the voter suppression that was done during the 2016 election in especially red states. I myself did not realize the extent of the tactics that can be used to suppress voters. I looked up voter suppression in the United States and Wikipedia has 10 pages which really explain what voter suppression is and what forms it can take. I learned a lot. I am planning on giving this paper out to fellow teachers where I teach because I truly believe there are many people in our communities that are busy raising children working at jobs where they cannot read the internet during the day, grocery shopping, and tending to their families when they come home. I am an older women and can listen to what I want on the TV and read a lot.

AM Joy also looked at voter suppression and its impact on the 2016 election and the potential for 2018. After reading these articles, I'm starting to get paranoid about even the special elections that are coming up in many states.

I am a teacher and so used to dispensing information and I truly feel if more people realized what is truly going on and how crooked the GOP is that concept alone could help us win elections.

I desperately want people to stop beating up Hillary, her message, her personality, her weak character, her email server, etc. etc. etc. The ton of orange fat sitting in the White House now, his stupid family, and his stupid cabinet and assistants need to be FIRED!

I am trying to do everything that I can to educated and rally support for the BLUE TEAM.

2. Here is one of the very

 

serious of the voter suppression tools used. Have had Relatives and a family member tell us that they are required to have a Original Birth Certificate in order to register to vote. First it takes weeks to obtain one,and second it can cost 75-90 dollars up front. Photo copies can not be used.

This is one of Chris Kobach's favorite tools,besides his Cross-check crap.
