It is a disgrace that we continue to hear about problems at the polls across America, the greatest country in the world. For example, Fulton County is the largest county in metro Atlanta and has a high black and Latino population, reported widespread problems at the polls.
“There are lots of reports of folks who registered on time but are not in the system, reports of places that ran out of provisional ballots, reports of not having let people cast provisional ballots,” Thomas said. “Keep in mind, the provisional ballot is the ultimate safety net. It’s not a matter of ‘if’ you can fill it out.”
He stressed, “We’re doing everything we possibly can to communicate that the provisional ballot is the ultimate safety net to cast your ballot, no matter what.” Source
What this means is that one of the basic rights of Americans, the right to vote, was taken away right before their eyes. How are we much better than a Third World country? The less voters you have, the more likely it will be for the Republicans to win. That’s what they want.
