As voting for the presidential begins all across the country, voter suppression is rising at a rapid pace. People are being forced to wait in lines for as long as ten hours to cast their vote, skipping meals, missing work and some putting their literal lives at risk. 

 

Due to the outrageous number of polling locations that have been closed, and the fact that the offices that remain open are extremely understaffed, voting has become damn near impossible.

 

When millions of people don’t vote because it is literally too hard for them to, that is voter suppression. And it’s Black and Brown voters who are facing the majority of this suppression. 

 

Since Black, Brown and other minorities are more likely to vote Democrat, it makes sense why Republicans have fought for years to enforce these voter suppression laws. 

 

On today’s episode of The Breakdown, Shaun unpacks and explains what Democrats are doing wrong, and what they must change moving forward in order to save this election.
