Voting Rights Laws - Episode 54
With the mid-term elections coming up, Matt and Tony have a conversation about voting rights laws. They discuss their origin and how they were originally targeted at minorities, to keep them from voting. In this episode you’ll learn about literacy tests and poll taxes for black voters and how there are many states in which you don’t need an ID to vote.
The Takeaway – It’s clear that a lot of new voter ID laws are intended to suppress minority votes. The flipside is we need to get ID’s for everybody. This would help with getting rid of voter fraud.
