"Voting rights on the line?" But not one example, just more poor, pitiful me BS! Didn't you get the memo that we, an 83% white country, elected a black president TWICE?

This story is nothing more than an announcement that there was a meeting being held. No specifics, no actual examples of how the voting rights act is being attacked. Probably because there are none. Unless they are all worried that they might have to provide an ID when they vote or prove they live at their alleged address. Or even prove they are US citizens. Or provide their own transportation to the polls?
