There were 868 fewer voting locations in 2016, because the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act last year. The closure of these 868 voting locations were overwhelmingly in Democratic precincts, and these closures were initiated by Republican elected officials at the state and local level. These closures created extremely long lines for Democratic voters, and countless numbers of voters gave up and went home without voting.

This is the method of operations for the modern day Republican Party. The Republican Party is fascist, the Republican Party is evil, and they simply do not believe in democracy. It's going to take years, if not decades, for the Democrats to overcome these voting obstacles that the Republican Party has put in place.

There Are 868 Fewer Places to Vote in 2016 Because the Supreme Court Gutted the Voting Rights Act

Excerpt:

When Aracely Calderon, a naturalized US citizen from Guatemala, went to vote in downtown Phoenix just before the polls closed in Arizona’s March 22 presidential primary, there were more than 700 people in a line stretching four city blocks. She waited in line for five hours, becoming the last voter in the state to cast a ballot at 12:12 am. “I’m here to exercise my right to vote,” she said shortly before midnight, explaining why she stayed in line. Others left without voting because they didn’t have four or five hours to spare.

The lines were so long because Republican election officials in Phoenix’s Maricopa County, the largest in the state, reduced the number of polling places by 70 percent from 2012 to 2016, from 200 to just 60—one polling place per 21,000 registered voters. Previously, Maricopa County would have needed federal approval to reduce the number of polling sites, because Arizona was one of 16 states where jurisdictions with a long history of discrimination had to submit their voting changes under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act. This part of the VRA blocked 3,000 discriminatory voting changes from 1965 to 2013. That changed when the Supreme Court gutted the law in the June 2013 Shelby County v. Holder decision.

You should. Trump is not a legitimately elected president, and neither was Bush. The only way you fuckers "win" is by cheating.

The Republican Party has not legitimately won a Presidential election since Bush in 1988.

It ain't your "turn", but at least you admit it. You fascist fucks have been suppressing the votes of minorities for years. No "turn" is necessary for you assholes. It's simply what you fascist Repug fucks do.

You got one thing right, goober. You are a deplorable piece of shit. Can't argue with that.

Oh quit with your left-wing bull, or I'll whip out my Factcheck links and prove you to be a complete dope. Bush won both elections fair and square.

'We were robbed.'

No, Hillary was REJECTED...AGAIN.
Libs are going to have a tough time with this one. They won't know who to blame. Of course, they can't blame themselves because the best part about being a liberal is never having to say you were wrong.

Democrats lost because you ran someone with two separate fbi investigations. Even a liberal friend of mine from Vermont voted for Trump. That's why democrats lost.

I can prove what I say, you can't. You just spew out what you were brainwashed to.
You can't prove shit. According to the exit polls, Gore won FL in 2000 and Kerry won OH in 2004. The exit polls are the only thing that really matters, especially when you Repug fascist fucks constantly cheat. Plus, Katherine Harris in FL and Ken Blackwell in OH both initiated policies at a state-wide level to make it harder for minorities to vote.

But getting back on subject, you're basically admitting that it's OK that you fascist fucks suppress the votes of minorities. Got it, fascist dickhead.

This country has never elected a president by popular vote. Please keep showing the world how ignorant you are. You seem to get off on it.

This has been the aim of Republicans for the last five years. Do everything in every state at every level to suppress the vote of people of color. We are witnessing a slow motion coup to illegally confiscate democracy. They know they can't win just by normal voting, the way the democracy was set up. The only way they can win is by cheating and they have taken to cheating like piranhas on a bloody goat.

We have to accept the facts, conservatives have given up on this democracy. These are people that if they can't have their way they are going to cheat and rig the system in every way possible. And for them they think there will be no consequences to them personally and until now they were right. The world is going to change for them.
