True the Vote Debunks Liberal ‘Voter Suppression’ Narrative

OHIOJPG

After recently exposing Obama campaign attempts to deny voters their right to serve as poll clerks in Ohio, True the Vote published new research today that directly challenges the dominant liberal narrative that voter suppression activity was rampant in the 2012 General Election.

The report could offer inconvenient truths for those arguing to protect the Department of Justice’s ability to block voter ID laws in a number of states, according to Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act. Progressive activists argue this federal power is critical to preventing 21st Century voter suppression efforts by conservatives. Oral arguments challenging the constitutionality of Section 5 are scheduled to be heard in the United States Supreme Court today.

The election watchdog undertook a dynamic research project collecting data from swing states for reports of voter suppression and ongoing criminal investigations. True the Vote announced today that between Ohio, Florida, Colorado, Nevada, North Carolina and Maryland, only a single “alleged” report of voter suppression existed according to county clerks and election boards, the state and local authorities charged with overseeing election matters.
