But we are going in the wrong direction. For example, John.
A lawyer is trying to convince the Supreme court to rule against voter suppression laws.
Aw man! I don't have time to vote! the line is so long!
so the lawyer talks about how the VRA was passed and stuff, so everyone could vote.
crud! If I want to vote, I need a license, and the DMV is an hour away. These laws are kind of unfair....
Lawyer talks about how we are going in the wrong direction. ie John and michelle.
You see? you might be thinking, well people allow you to vote earlier than election day, or that you can take a day off, but in reality, States, especially those with a republican majority, have been passing laws that make it harder for specific people to vote. they claim that they are just trying to stop voter fraud, but they are preventing the most ineffective and inefficient form.
JOhn's story. he is poor and works multiple jobs. he cannot afford to take time off to vote.
Vote here today!
Michelle is also poor, and in her state, in order to vote she needs an ID. unfortunately, the process takes too long, and she cannot afford to take time off to go get that done. on top of that, she is a single mother and can't afford a babysitter.
Lawyer comes back to the present and explains the situations.
