Last week, Craigslist and craigconnects founder Craig Newmark released “Think you have the right to vote? Not so much!,” a witty and comprehensive infographic on voter suppression across the United States. With hard numbers and clear graphics, it lays out how the elimination of Election Day registration, restrictions on independent voter registration activities, reduction of the days allowed for early voting, photo ID requirements, and proof of citizenship requirements negatively impact voters.
The infographic relies heavily on the Brennan Center’s Voting Law Changes in 2012 report detailing how new suppressive laws could affect up to 5 million voters in the 2012 elections. The Brennan Center is a grantee of the Open Society Foundations.
Take a look, and spread the word.
