Reading the media one would think things are one sided….
Republican lawmakers across the country forwarding more and more legislation to limited times, locations, and require more and more hops to jump thru to cast their votes…
Add to that….
A Supreme Court that just gave those Republican lawmakers a pass to do just whatever they want with their voting rules and regulations …
Of Course Congress IS not gonna address Voting Rights now that Donald Trump is out their crying because too many people actually voted AGAINST him and his party people actually counted the votes ….

“I want to make clear that this is about all voters . . . this is not about Democrats or Republicans; this is about Americans,” Harris said. “We want to help you vote, and we want to help make sure your vote is counted. And that is because our democracy is strongest when everyone participates, and it is weaker . . . when people are left out.”….
