Republicans are perpetrating every dirty trick in the book to stop, in particular, people of color from voting. And will get away with it. Just as in 2016:
The Republican Party is building a program to recruit tens of thousands of volunteers in over a dozen states to conduct anti-”voter fraud” efforts, which means monitoring polls and challenging votes and voter registrations, according to the New York Times.
The party, backed by President Donald Trump, is spending $20 million on its efforts, which intends to recruit up to 50,000 volunteers in 15 states to “monitor polling places and challenge ballots and voters deemed suspicious,” the Times reports. The money is also intended to fight Democratic-backed lawsuits against alleged voter suppression efforts on the part of Republicans.
This headline from the Atlantic makes it perfectly clear that the voter suppression campaign comes straight from the White House:
Trump Is Brazenly Interfering With the 2020 Election
