I remember here in Florida they tried to purge the voter rolls right before the election, too late for people to fight to verify their right to vote. The courts overturned the purge but by then that many election offices claimed that they had already destroyed the lists and therefore they could not just put people back on the rolls. So many people who did not know they had been knocked off the voter rolls got to the polling places to find out they couldn’t vote and it was too late to challenge it for that election, it would be another election before they got the right to vote back, after they proved who they were and reregistered. I find it weird that people who claim to love a democracy would want to keep people from voting in that very thing they claim they love. Hugs

One of their (now former) party officials publicly admitted that their efforts were intended to suppress the vote in minority communities. Other candid remarks from Republicans on voter id laws were recorded and published from Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Texas, and elsewhere. Their undemocratic motives are quite obvious.
