Today, the recipe for voter suppression wafts the air at polling stations.
From purging voter rolls to police intimidation are reports coming in from Alabama.
Kristen Clarke, president & executive director of Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, posted on twitter that voting was “the most sacred right in our democracy,” but she too reports complaints at the polls.
Polls in Alabama are open until 7PM, but poll workers complain that voters are not receiving the proper process in voting. Here are a list of complaints:
▪️ACTIVE voters listed as INACTIVE
▪️Police intimidation at polls
▪️Long lines due to insufficient equipment
▪️Texts telling people their polling location changed
