The Voting Wars Continue


Voter ID laws were a bit of a bust last year, but that was mostly because they came too late and ran into problems in the courts. Needless to say, that doesn’t mean the Republican Party has given up on them. Nor have they given up on the idea of gaming the Electoral College to give themselves an artificial advantage in the 2016 election. Steve Benen rounds up the latest news here. This particular war didn’t end in 2012. It was just getting started.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
