The Onion Shows Off the GOP's Hot New Voter Suppression App

Illustration for article titled The Onion Shows Off the GOPs Hot New Voter Suppression App

If the GOP wants to win big on election day, it's going to have to do everything in its power to keep minorities from voting. But as The Onion rightly points out, its voter suppression methods are in drastic need of modernization. That doesn't mean the jokesters can't conjure up VoteRite, a fictional app that's tailor-made for disenfranchisement. Luckily for democracy, the GOP's dream app doesn't exist yet.

I think it is a bunch of bullshit saying that voter ID laws affect minorities and the poor. Do you know how hard it would be for an adult to live their entire lives without an ID? Even if that is the case I would be more than happy to pay a few more dollars in taxes to pay for their IDs. I was an election judge and I witnessed first hand how easy it is to vote twice or vote as someone else.
