Stacey Abrams, a black woman who unsuccessfully ran for governor of Georgia in 2018, narrates this journey of voter suppression in the United States, from the creation of our constitution that only allowed white male landowners to vote, right through to her contentious election, where her opponent was the Secretary of State in Georgia, responsible for certifying the election. Crazy right? The Supreme Court decision in 2013 to gut a majority of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, set in motion an avalanche of rules enacted by many states in the United States to simply make it more difficult for our citizens to vote.
The creepy thing is that Donald Trump, in 2020, co-opted huge amounts of the themes of voter fraud illuminated here. But in his case, while dozens of lawsuits were thrown out, there are only the statistics cited here – US citizens not being able to vote for any one of a dozen reasons.
ALL IN – THE FIGHT FOR DEMOCRACY shows us why the United States is at the bottom of the list of world democracies when it comes to access to voting.
