It couldn’t be any clearer what Republicans in states like GA and TX are doing. They are purposely undermining voting rights for Black and Latino Americans. Here’s how they’re doing it:
1. #GA Republicans are holding up the voter registration of 53,000, mostly Black people. The state’s Secretary of State Brian Kemp who oversees the voting roll is in a race for governor against Democrat @StaceyAbrams: nbcnews.com/politics/elect…
2. Florida has barred ex-felons who have completed their sentences from voting in the state denying 1.5 million people the right to vote. A referendum on the ballot in November would restore voting rights to these people: nytimes.com/2018/09/26/mag…
3. #OH Republicans are trying to kick voters off the rolls if they missed voting in the previous election: cleveland.com/court-justice/…
4. #IN Republicans have purged an estimated 500,000 people from the voting rolls. Worse? The voters weren't even informed they'd been removed. washingtonpost.com/opinions/regis…
Altogether, these voter suppression efforts amount to the toughest restrictions on voting rights since Jim Crow. #JimCrow2 thedailybeast.com/republicans-ha…
And no surprise, many of these measures have been taken since the conservatives on the Roberts Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act.
It’s no coincidence that this happening amidst a surge of energy among Democratic voters especially Black and Latino people and young people. Republicans fear massive losses if these voters are able to cast their ballots.
We must fight back against any attempts to deny people their constitutional right to vote.
