All of these voting issues the author brings up do need addressing, but apparently she forgets the trouble poor democrats had trying to vote in the primaries. I remember excessively long lines in parts of Houston and other cities, in the poor parts of these towns, where Sanders was predicted to win big.
This is not a single party issue.
The Supreme Court gutting Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act tells us what the financial rulers want. Joe Biden and corporate Democrats serve those financial rulers, the donor class, so don’t expect much beyond show from them.
Democrats have done little to challenge know voter suppression, even when it has been an obvious cause of their electoral loss. 2,000 is but one example.
