We call ourselves, constantly, loudly, boastfully, "the greatest country in the world," and gladly preach our virtues to nations we look down upon from the lofty heights of our democracy. But our hypocrisy stands exposed.
I love voting. Voting is a real, tangible action that reminds me what democracy is all about - everyone having a voice, everyone participating. So it is no surprise that I don't love when people aren't allowed to vote.
With only a day left before Election Day, states need to step up and educate voters about their voting laws. Every voter deserves clear information about what they need to do to vote, and this responsibility lies with local election officials. Our democracy depends on it.
