Controversy continues over voter suppression laws that have been passed in states governed by Republicans. Multiple studies and reports indicate there has not been voting fraud of any significance, which gives credibility to the belief that such measures are in place to make it more difficult for people of color, elderly and young people to vote. There have not been laws in place to restrict voting since the Jim Crow era. It is a sad commentary for the country (USA) that is supposed to be the shining example of Democracy throughout the world.
