Voter Suppression

The politicians should be more concerned about making it possible for everyone entitled to vote, to do so rather than trying to make it as difficult as possible especially for poor people, elderly & students

I have been an election official, including being "the judge" in my precinct & think current rules work very well.

Requiring voter ID is just an effort to suppress the vote when we should be looking instead for ways to make it easier for qualified folk to vote.That means to me we should extend hours, allow for early voting, provide some hours such as Sundays for early voting.

Find ways to extend opportunity to vote instead of trying to put barriers up!!!!!!!!!!


We seem to need some more creative leaders!
