Donald Trump and state Republicans have settled on their strategy for the November elections.
They’re going to cheat, by blocking millions of eligible voters from casting ballots – and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is warning the nation that the Supreme Court could let them get away with it.
In a case in Wisconsin, the five conservative justices ignored the current health crisis and reversed a lower court’s decision to make voting easier and safer. Justice Ginsburg wrote in her dissent that “the court’s order, I fear, will result in massive disenfranchisement.“
Republican voter suppression long pre-dates the current crisis, but it’s only getting worse: Limiting polling locations, passing strict voter ID laws, and implementing harsh voter registration requirements are just a few of their go-to tactics.
Now, Trump and state Republicans are going all-out to block the movement to expand vote-by-mail. Democrats have been fighting every day so that people can prioritize their health and safety while also fulfilling their civic duty.
We must work to stop the GOP from blocking vote-by-mail. Justice Ginsburg has warned us about the risk for millions of Americans: “Either they will have to brave the polls, endangering their own and others’ safety or they will lose their right to vote.”
