The extent to which right-wing extremists have systematically suppressed the citizens of many different countries from voting in American elections is well documented. It is RepugnantReprehensibleRaysis.

* Ohio republicans charged a county for mailing absentee ballots.
* Some polling stations have had hours shortened.
* Others have reduced early voting.
* Some localities have restricted same-day registration.
* Some felons have been purged from voter roles.

Given demographic trends, voter suppression is definitely on the Right Side of History.
This song comes to mind.
