I heard there will be some Dems on the panel and they are also looking into voter suppression. We all know there is not any high volumes of voter fraud but maybe they will actually talk about the voter suppression even if it is only lip service

There's zero chance they do anything about their carefully contrived voter supression schemes. No Dem should lower him/herself or legitimize this with their participation.

Indeed, in the country at large, numerous studies have found that the incidence of voter impersonation in particular is vanishingly small. One study that examined 14 years of elections in the entire country found only 31 cases of potential voter fraud over a time when more than a billion votes were cast.

But Republicans know that putting up impediments to voting, such as requiring photo IDs, limiting early voting times, and cutting back on the number of polling places, makes it more likely that Republicans will win. Those measures make it less likely that the kind of people who will vote for Democrats -- particularly African-Americans but also Latinos, young people, and urban dwellers -- will manage to register and vote. It's a thumb on the scale that can sometimes be enough to do the job.

And now President Trump has turned to Kris Kobach to figure out what should be done about the American election system. There's no doubt what he'll recommend: more restrictions, more hurdles, more suppression of votes that by some inexplicable coincidence are precisely the ones most likely to be cast for Democrats.
Then Republicans in statehouses and on Capitol Hill will take the recommendations and work to enshrine them into law. I wish it were just something we could laugh at, but it isn't.

L0L @ Trumplethinskin.

Losing the popular vote and getting massively outdone by Obama re: inauguration attendance must have left his fragile ego permanently bruised.

The GOP can no longer be considered a party interested in constitionality, freedom or even the most rudimentary form of democratic representation. Their behavior over the last 17 years shows them to be a rogue political movement bent on achieving power at any cost whatsoever, including the worst examples of the system run amok the followed in the early days of the post-reconstruction era. This is an anto-democratic, anti-democracy movement and it has to be ground down state by state and defeated until it becomes irrelevant. Failure to do this will ultimately result in the disappearance of the American experiment as we have known it.

That is because the people that vote for the repubs are more concerned about keeping minorities down then their own well being

Stay tuned for the federal watchdogs to have their funding eliminated.

We have a dictator in power.

ShamelessFalsehood likes to say he's about constitutional rights, unless of course that extends to the mud people and their right to vote, then all bets are off.

This **** is going on all across the nation. It's an organized GOP initiative to steal elections everywhere. In other words, it's a soft coup attempt. It's merely a high tech update to the old poll taxes, literacy tests and other bull**** that the post-reconstruction era employed to eliminate the right to vote for black citizens. The current iteration now targets other voices that need to be silenced as well.

My...how short a distance we have actually come in a hundred years.

Quote:
Jan Mensz, an attorney at ACLU of Indiana, said crosscheck systems are on the rise nationally.

The issue of voter purges is one that many states are tackling. The U.S. Supreme Court is set to hold oral arguments Nov. 8 in Husted v. A. Philip Randolph Institute. Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted, a Republican, is accused of violating the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 and disproportionately affecting black, Hispanic and poor voters who traditionally support Democrats.

The court will determine whether the failure to cast a ballot in recent elections, or "voter inactivity," can lawfully trigger efforts to remove a person from the voter registration rolls.

Common Cause sued the Indiana secretary of state in 2012 regarding the method with which Marion County's judges were nominated as candidates to fill judicial seats.

Yep.

It's how Dumbya "won" in 2000.

The NAACP even filed (and won) a suit against the company (Choice Point) the FL Secretary of State (who, by "coincidence," was also Dumbya's FL campaign chair) used to illegally purge African American "felons" from the FL voter rolls.

These cockroaches admitted guilt, and yet here we are...

Cheating is the only way they can win.

Voter purge frenzy after federal protections lifted, new report says

Nine states with a history of racial discrimination are aggressively removing voters from the rolls, the Brennan Center for Justice says.



Nine states with a history of racial discrimination are more aggressively removing registered voters from their rolls than other states, according to a report released Friday.

After reviewing voter purges nationally from 2012 to 2016, the nonpartisan Brennan Center for Justice found that the mostly Southern jurisdictions that had once been required to get changes to voting policies pre-approved by the Justice Department had higher rates of purging than jurisdictions that were not previously subject to pre-clearance.

A key section of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which was designed to protect minority voters from state disenfranchi-s-e-m-e-n-t, was struck down by the Supreme Court in 2013, allowing states to begin making changes affecting voting without first getting federal approval.

Republicans have no problem with taking people's right to vote away. They have always been willing to do this. To me this is criminal.

This is no longer a democracy or even a republic.

We are transitioning into a full white supremacy, fascist state with a plutocracy as the underlying dominant power structure. I estimate we have about 20 years before full systemic failure and a descent into civil war. The criminally insane regime now in control may shorten that timeline if they are not removed from power.

History will record the fall of the nation at the hands of its own people long before that however. It began the day the nation was formed for a selected group but promised what they knew they wouldn’t attempt to deliver...”liberty and justice for all”.

The founders envisioned "a nation of laws, not men."

Benedict Donald and his GOP accomplices have turned that idea on its head.

So what's the problem with voter ID?

Care to explain how Mud Creek precinct in Habersham County, Georgia managed to cast 670 votes when there were only 276 registered voters a couple weeks ago?

Did you actually read the article? Itís a prime example of why we need to secure our elections and return to paper ballots, something your party opposes vehemently for some reason.

Wow, is this some kind of left projection Jedi mind trick? Dems and Gore cried foul in 2000 when Florida couldn't get their hanging chads straight hence the move to electronic voting machines.

Trump was right.

All this "collusion" going on pretty much forced the issue of having more secure elections.
