    As we know the GOP/conservatives are desperately trying to cling to power as their core demographic shrinks, getting older and whiter. An example of one of the tactics. You should hope your last name is not Jose Garcia or John Washington or some select others or the Repubs might make you prove you are not registered to vote in other states.:mad:

    Crosscheck — GA, VA, OH, NC, and perhaps 25+ more
    8-24-2015 - Rolling Stone - by Greg Palast -

    The GOP’s Stealth War Against Voters Will an anti-voter-fraud program designed by one of Trump’s advisers deny tens of thousands their right to vote in November [editors note: more likely 1 to 7.2 million, 85% of who will be people of color]. ? The latest tool: Election officials in more than two dozen states have compiled lists of citizens whom they allege could be registered in more than one state – thus potentially able to cast multiple ballots – and eligible to be purged from the voter rolls.

    Rolling Stone had Mark Swedlund, a database expert whose clients include eBay and American Express, look at the data from Georgia and Virginia, and he was shocked by Crosscheck's "childish methodology." He added, "God forbid your name is Garcia, of which there are 858,000 in the U.S., and your first name is Joseph or Jose. You're probably suspected of voting in 27 states."

    Swedlund's statistical analysis found that African-American, Latino and Asian names predominate, a simple result of the Crosscheck matching process, which spews out little more than a bunch of common names. No surprise: The U.S. Census data shows that minorities are overrepresented in 85 of 100 of the most common last names. If your name is Washington, there's an 89 percent chance you're African-American. If your last name is Hernandez, there's a 94 percent chance you're Hispanic. If your name is Kim, there's a 95 percent chance you're Asian.

    Please... Like both parties don't suppress the votes of large segments of the population.

    Oh... wait... They don't. Only one party is doing that.

    Hey, as long as they can pay to vote, and read and write, what could be wrong with this?

    The gop is at it again. What a shameful and undemocratic party. No wonder trump is their leader.

    Last min change to suppress voting. Iowan should be mad as hell.

    https://www.desmoinesregister.com/s...king-harder-iowans-vote-editorial/3173108001/

    ...


    Their latest effort to fulfill this mission came in the form of a last-minute 30-page amendment to a previously simple, noncontroversial bill. Sen. Roby Smith, R-Davenport, said the new legislation, passed along party lines after a contentious late-night debate, is intended to support “safe, secure and reliable elections.”

    It is not. Iowa already has safe, secure and reliable elections.

    The goal is voter suppression.

    The bill, among other things, prohibits the secretary of state from mailing absentee ballot requests to Iowans without a written voter request.

    In other words, it would prevent the current secretary, Republican Paul Pate, from doing exactly what he recently did. To promote voting by mail during the coronavirus pandemic, he sent mail-in ballot request forms for the June 2 primary to all registered voters in the state.

    The result was record voter turnout, largely due to absentee voting.

    Paxton is a piece of s*it with his head so far up Trump's butt I don't even know how he's still able to breathe. I like these responses.
