The Attack on Voting Rights
Welcome to The Nu Deal Podcast!
By Gerry Nutini
Voting Rights are a hot subject right now. Two major bills look to expand access to voting for eligible Americans, while many states try to limit the ability of voters to get to the polls — even if that means eligible voters end up losing their right. After a quick rundown of this week’s headlines, I explore how we got here, what factors are driving it, how restrictive laws can target specific groups of people, and finally, I review both Voting Rights bills currently being considered by the Senate.
As always, there’s room for Democrats, Republicans, Conservatives, and Liberals to be part of this conversation, so be sure to let me know your thoughts on this divisive issue.
