Map of the Day: Preventing Students From Voting

This comes from Campus Progress and shows the spread of laws designed to make it harder for college students to vote. Why? Because college students tend to vote for Democrats. The group behind this push, you’ll be unsurprised to learn, is funded by all the usual conservative suspects, including everyone’s villain du jour, the Koch brothers.

WE DON'T KNOW

What's going to happen next as the headlines grow crazier and more disconcerting by the day. But we do know the job of an independent, unrelenting press is more important than ever—and the ongoing commitment of MoJo readers to fight for a democracy where facts matter and all can participate is absolutely vital.

If you feel the urgency deep in your bones like we do, please consider signing up as a monthly donor during our fall pledge drive to support Mother Jones' fair and fearless reporting for the long haul (or make a one-time gift if that works better for you). The headlines may fade, but the need to investigate the powerful never will.
