Discussion Post

 

For this topic, we are going to have a conversation on the different forms of voter suppression/intimidation. There are many different forms, some of which of depend state by state, some maybe argued or debated over of the legitimacy, but many of the forms listed have plenty of documented record and public consensus of their legitimacy. In the past we have seen such forms as poll taxes, literacy tests and “grandfather clauses”. Today, voter suppression or intimidation has included Voter ID laws, gerrymandering, limiting early voting and underfunded or lack of voting recourses like closing polling sites, limiting ballot boxes for mail-in votes and understaffed polls that create long lines and long waiting periods which may deter people from voting.

PLEASE REVIEW: Visit the link here for a list of forms of voter suppression published by The Voting Rights Alliance. 

Please review the list and pick two forms of voter suppression that are of interest or concern to you. You may choose forms of voter suppression that have been covered in the assigned readings or you may choose others. Take some time and search online, reading different articles and watching different videos to understand what these forms of voter suppression are, how they affect the voter and what has been done or suggested to address that issue. I have extended the deadline to post until next Friday, Nov. 6, so you may want to wait for the assigned readings/videos on Monday that will cover some of the forms mentioned to have a better understanding. This exercise is intended for you to do some of our own exploration on the types of voter suppression and/or intimidation.

Once you have an understanding of the two forms of voter suppression you chose, in your own words described to us in the post, using examples from your sources and tell us what these two forms are and why you chose them and what has been done or suggested to resolve these forms of suppression.
