Folks, as I've mentioned over on craigconnects, anytime there's upcoming elections, that means that you should be aware of your rights.
There are some real bad actors out there trying to implement laws to stop eligible people, including women, people of color, and older folks, from voting. What I learned in high school civics class is that an attack on voting rights is virtually the same as an attack on the country.
Some politicians have tried to manipulate voting laws for their benefit, that's not right. We need integrity in our elections and voting that's free, fair, and accessible.
It's up to us all to ensure the integrity of our voting process by getting registered, speaking up against voter ID laws and the attack on voting rights, and to encourage everyone to vote, regardless of ethnicity or gender.
Disenfranchising voters is not a new thing, but has been happening across the country for some time now. A while back, I worked with some good folks to create an infographic about the impact of voter suppression.
My team and I have also compiled a list of voting resources; please check it out, and share any helpful resources that you think are missing in the comments of this post. Thanks!
