Voter Disenfranchisment

It's happened in pretty much every election ever held in the US and it could get worse before it gets better.

Check out this story from PBS NOW. The page has a link to a video on the subject of "voter restrictions," or new and up-coming laws that are likely designed to keep certain voters out of the booths. What's really interesting is that the same lawmakers who claim to be fighting "voter fraud" also try to make it easier to vote absentee, which is supposedly an easier way to commit voter fraud and just happens to be more widely used by whites.
