Voter Suppression

Clearly there have been several efforts to suppress voter registration this last year.  The Wisconsin installation of a required ID card that is supposed to be free but only if you know to check a box on the application; otherwise there will be a charge that staff will not prompt you on.  Similar things have been happening in Texas, Alabama and other states.  The effort to put polling in difficult to access places were the poor will wait for long periods to vote... unlike rich areas where there is no waiting.  Some bills have even been introduced to undo mail in voting.
