Restricting citizens right to vote

There is absolutely no honest reason to reduce the number of citizens voting in elections. The claims of protecting elections from voter fraud is sheer nonsense. Fraud by citizens attempting to vote is extremely rare and punished severely in the rare cases in which occurs. The real voter fraud in this country is perpetuated by election officials who devise arcane voting rules making it difficult or impossible for some persons to cast a vote. These disenfranchised persons are almost always citizens not likely to vote for candidates of the party stiffling voting and registration. This is entirely contrary to our Constitution and the requirements of an effective democracy. It must be stopped NOW. We are all equal citizens and have a constitutional right to vote in our elections. So stop this nonsense NOW.
