A huge thank you to Garry Trudeau for staying on the topic of voter suppression.

Again, Republican Voter I.D. laws and efforts to make early registration more difficult for Democratic districts (but not GOP ones) are thinly veiled attempts to restrict Democratic voters and hand elections to the Republicans.

Here is Pennsylvania’s legal stipulation that there is no voter fraud, yet the judge is allowing the law to stay in effect.

You can read a good recap of the voter suppression problem here. Remember: Voter fraud is rarer than getting struck by lightning. And there’s nothing wrong with having a picture I.D…. as long as anyone can get one at no cost, as long as they are easily accessible, and as long as there is no hardship physically or financially, whatsoever, involved in acquiring one, including having to produce documents that may not have ever been available to many citizens.
