Topic: Voting Rights

Divided Church
Is this the year Liberals take back religion from Conservatives?
This comprehensive editorial reviews a wide range of trends to explore this issue.
Video of Barack Obama speech circulating on the Internet was edited to make him say individuals should "surrender their rights to an all-powerful sovereign."
In an address to European youth, Obama praised efforts at international order and denounced those who did not believe in the ability of ordinary people to govern their own affairs.  The video was been tampered with in order to make it look like he said the opposite.
Ruth Ginsburg Supreme Court
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Ginsburg pens scathing dissent on Texas voter ID law.
Ginsburg said: "The greatest threat to public confidence in elections in this case is the prospect of enforcing a purposefully discriminatory law, one that likely imposes an unconstitutional poll tax and risks denying the right to vote to hundreds of thousands of eligible voters." She was joined in dissent by Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor.
Megyn Kelly Fox News
Kelly falsely claims, "A new Colorado law "literally allows residents to print ballots from their home computers, then encourages them to turn ballots over to ‘collectors.’
Kelly later admited this statement is false. The new law allows a universal mail-in system for active, registered voters. Ballots are mailed to voters, not printed out. Members of the military and voters who live overseas continue to be able to vote online.
Texas Politics
Texas politics. Check the truth about 200 political claims in this hot Texas election.
Many hotly contested Texas races produced many false claims on both sides of the isle. Check out if your candidate is telling the truth.
Your Vote Counts
Don't know who to believe? Before you vote check if your candidate is telling the truth.
PolitiFact makes it easy to look up politicians or pundits by name, and view whether they have told the truth or fabricated lies.
Your Vote Counts
Between 2000 and 2010 there were some 649 million votes cast in general elections, but only a handful have been convicted of in-person voter impersonation.
Voter fraud has existed in every election in history, and many forms of voter fraud prevention are now in place. Voter fraud includes deliberately gerrymandering districts to favor a particular party and passing laws to limit groups of people from having their constitutional right to vote.
Gerrymandering congressional districts
Crimes Against Geography- America’s most gerrymandered congressional districts
The point of gerrymandering is to give your opponents a small number of safe seats, while drawing yourself a larger number of seats that are not quite as safe. This practice of denying true representation is at least partly to blame for the lopsided Republican representation in the House.
Roy Moore R-al
Alabamians "haven’t changed their opinion" on same-sex marriage since voting to ban it in 2006.
An overwhelming number of people still oppose same-sex marriage in Alabama, but polling data suggests measurable movement on this issue. Recent polls show about 71 percent of likely voters oppose same-sex marriage today.
Hillary Clinton
Democrats wage a national fight over gerrymandering and restrictive voting rules.
Democrats allied with Hillary Rodham Clinton are mounting a nationwide legal battle seeking to single out voting laws in Texas, Florida, North Carolina, New Jersey, Ohio and Wisconsin that limit participation, especially among minorities, the poor and younger voters, who disproportionately cast their ballots for Democrats.
Hillary Clinton
Clinton says "You can vote in Texas with a concealed-weapon permit, but a valid student ID isn’t good enough?"
Rick Perry, the state’s governor into 2015, signed a law that a federal court said was actually written with the purpose of discriminating against minority voters.
Lindsey Graham R Sc
Republican presidential candidate unloads on Fox News during Fox News interview.
Presidential candidate and Sen. Lindsey Graham is furious about Fox News' rules for the first GOP primary debate. Graham said Fox's poll-driven process is "destroying" the opportunity for all of the scrappy, underfunded candidates to win over voters in the small, early primary states. 
Jim Wright Ex-speaker
New voter ID laws in Texas restrict minorities and elderly, even the former speaker of the US House.
Ninety year-old ex-speaker of the US House, Jim Wright, no longer drives, and his faculty ID card from TCU, where he teaches, so he doesn't meet requirements to vote without a special affidavit. Even Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Sen. Wendy Davis had to get an affidavit in order to vote under the new laws.
Voter Supression
Blatant Alabama voter suppression is challenged.
Alabama's only Democratic member of Congress is requesting the Justice Department investigate the state's decision to close 31 driver's license offices in poor, rural, mostly-African American communities.  Since they started requiring a drivers license to vote the move could curtail the voting rights. (Note: Gerrymandering and voter suppression is UN-Christian!)
Donald Trump
Trump says, "You have to be a citizen to vote," but with same-day voter registration, "you have places where people just walk in and vote."
Some states do have same-day voter registration, but people have to provide the same level of identification as when registering in advance. Experts told us there is no additional risk of non-citizens casting ballots in states with same-day voter registration, nor is there any evidence that this occurs.
