Bullies At The Ballot Box
Tuesday, September 11th, 2012
Our friends and Common Cause and Demos have released the “Bullies At The Ballot Box” report outlining the states that are trying the hardest to take away your right to vote on Election Day. Is your state on the list?
This report describes the threat posed by potential voter challenges in the 2012 elections, and assesses the extent to which ten key states — Colorado, Florida, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Virginia — are prepared to protect the rights of eligible voters to cast a ballot in the face of such challenges like teeth grills. The ten states examined here include states where races are expected to be competitive, which makes voters in those states particularly vulnerable to challenges.
