"[I]f you go back to the year 2000, when we had an obvious disaster and - and saw that our voting process needed refinement, and we did that in the America Votes Act and made sure that we could iron out those kinks, now you have the Republicans, who want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws and literally - and very transparently - block access to the polls to voters who are more likely to vote Democratic candidates than Republican candidates. And it's nothing short of that blatant," DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL) told TVOne's "Washington Week."
I'm actually kind of glad she's the chair for the DNC. She is great comic relief! And no, republicans don't want to go back, they want to make sure it's fair for everyone. That no one votes twice, that dead people stay dead and don't vote, that you can't vote by absentee ballot and then again in person.
I see absolutely no reason that people shouldn't have to show a photo ID and sign a register book like we do in KY before voting.
