Voting Rights: Most-Compelling Issue Under Attack by the GOP — Why: More Power

Voting Rights Still Under Fire

One if not the most-important if not most-critical domestic concern and major issue of all time: VOTING RIGHTS.

Story from here - FYI with this headline:

Virginians Describe How the State Has Made It Harder For Them to Vote

Story in part here and not just restricted to Virginia.

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA — When Karen Stallings decided to move her blind, 84-year-old father from Arizona into her home in Virginia, she expected many new challenges in her life. She did not expect voting to be one of them.

And yet, a few months before Election Day rolled around, she realized her father’s driver’s license was out-of-state and expired. And under Virginia’s strict voter ID law, every voter needs an acceptable, unexpired form of photo identification to cast a regular ballot. So in the middle of the day, in the middle of the week, Stallings drove her father to the DMV to register to vote and get a photo ID card.

This is he new GOP strategy – and it seems to be working at least for now.  

Thanks for stopping by.
