Restrictive Voter Laws On The Rise

This year 41 states have introduced at least 180 bills that would reduce voting, whether by requiring an ID at the polls, curbing registration drives, or limiting early balloting. Critics argue these measures are aimed at disenfranchising the young, minorities, and the poor. Here are some of the more controversial laws under consideration:

  • Nevada: Polling places will no longer supply ballots; voters must bring their own
  • Ohio: Voters must present valid Republican Party membership card
  • Tennessee: All registered voters must show up at polling areas with at least one normal-looking coworker who promises that voter is cool
  • Pennsylvania: No restrictions
  • Kentucky: Polling place staffed by voters’ high school girlfriends and boyfriends
  • Alabama: Voters required to correctly guess the number the voting inspector is thinking of
  • Arboria: To be deemed worthy, potential voters must complete the Rite of Passage ceremony by sticking their hands into the hollow stump
  • Oregon: Voters have to give five reasons why voting actually matters
  • Minnesota: Each voter must devise one new voting restriction for next person in line before being allowed to enter booth
