The Unseemly Politics Of Voter Suppression

In Maricopa County, home of more than half of Arizona’s voters, material reminding Spanish-language speakers to vote lists Election Day as Nov. 8, two days after the polls close. The Florida Division of Elections is investigating letters sent to voters in 24 counties that say recipients have been flagged as possible non-citizens and are therefore ineligible to vote. And voters in several swing states have reported receiving calls telling them they can vote by phone instead of at the ballot box. While President Obama and Mitt Romney work to mobilize as much of their base as possible, some operatives are working behind the scenes to dissuade the other side’s voters from casting their ballots.
