Alabama Congressional Candidate Says State Has Purged Thousands Of Voters
Unfortunately, efforts to make it harder to vote are nothing new in Alabama. Since key parts of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 were struck down in 2013, the state has enacted various policies that construct obstacles to voting, according to a
New York Times
report. Similar scenarios are playing out all over the country — from
Georgia, where gubernatorial candidate
Stacey Abrams is leading the charge against voter suppression, to
North Dakota — in the lead-up to the 2018 midterm elections, with voters of color disproportionately affected.
