Many factors can affect who is able to cast a ballot on Election Day, including what kind of identification a voter needs, how many polling places are open, and any illegal attempts to suppress turnout among certain demographics. The articles in this volume examine how voter suppression has become a hotly contested issue, with many Democrats arguing that restrictive policies disproportionally affect communities such as black voters, students, and impoverished neighborhoods, whereas many Republicans consider voter ID laws necessary to prevent fraud, even though studies show in-person voter fraud is extremely rare. Through the reporting in this compilation and its media literacy guide, readers will gain an understanding about the many forms of voter suppression and its impact on U.S. elections.
