New Voting Restrictions in Place for 2016 Presidential Election

In 2013, the US Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act "because racism no longer exists". Or something.

14 states promptly responded with new voting restrictions.

The new laws range from strict photo ID requirements to early voting cutbacks to registration restrictions.

Those 14 states are: Alabama, Arizona, Indiana, Kansas, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Ohio, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Colour me surprised at this list. lol.

Keep in mind...voter fraud in the US was estimated to be...close to zero percent. The gutting of the Voting Rights Act, which adversely affects Black people & the poor (aka Democratic voters), was a purposeful and cynical use of systemic racism by Republicans.
