Oh so you are saying that there is no story in this thread about actual voter suppression, but that you predict that the Republican party, which you spend every day disparaging, might suppress the vote in Texas someday?
That is not what I am saying.
They are currently initiating a voter registration scheme that is having an impact RIGHT NOW on who can and cannot register to vote. I know several women in Texas who have already been turned away, who have previously voted without a problem, and who now have to take a lot of time to straighten out the mess.
If this Republican created fiction of "protecting the integrity of the vote" is not straightened out by the next election, many women will not be allowed to vote, who previously had no problem- married women whose middle names are their maiden names.
There is no "might suppress" about it. Republicans in Texas are currently engaged in a scheme to disallow the votes of tens of thousands of women.. and the proof of this assertion is found in the women who have already tested the system by seeing whether or not they currently possess the proper documentation.
