Craigslist Founder Jumps Into Voting Rights Fight

Ryan J. Reilly March 29, 2012, 11:05 AM

Craigslist founder Craig Newmark is jumping into the voting rights fight, with his group craigconnects publishing an infographic that illustrates the surge of voting restrictions that have been enacted in states around the country in recent years.

“What I learned in high school civics class is that an attack on voting rights is virtually the same as an attack on the country,” Newmark said in a statement. “So I asked people smarter than me to help me do what George Washington would have wanted me to do, collect and release the information you’re getting from us today.”

“I think all Americans should be concerned about these new voter restrictions,” Newmark said. “Voting is our fundamental right. If the states continue to restrict who can vote, who knows where they will stop?”
