Register to Vote:

breaking my hiatus real quick with an urgent reminder to REGISTER TO VOTE if you haven’t yet done so. Nov 6th is just around the corner. There’s far too much at stake for anyone to abstain.

black voters savin the day (and the country) again

The states shown in light red had voting restrictions in place for the 2012 election. Those in darker red had restrictions in place for the 2016 election. States shown in the darkest red have put voting restrictions in place since last November’s election.

Make sure to know the laws in your states. Winning 2018 will be much harder if we don’t start registering in 2017, and then in 2019 we can overturn these poll taxes: http://www.voteriders.org/get-voter-id/
