September 24, 2020: Women Rising Radio: Election Protection and Democracy
Election protection is increasingly seen as a critical issue in the US. Since the gutting of the Voting Rights Act by the Supreme Court, there have been problems with voter purging, voter ID laws, what some call modern-day poll taxes, precinct closures, and difficulties with voting machines.
