something worth mentioning regarding the VRA is that some of the deep south states (the whole USA is but the south’s population is growing faster iirc) are experiencing demographic shifts that would make it so that republican presidential campaigns would have to play defense in more states
north carolina almost went blue two elections in a row and virginia did just that, and the credit for that goes to demographic shifts as well as the impressive machinery of the obama campaign.
republicans having to defend virginia and north carolina in a presidential election is not a good thing for them. new states aren’t in the safe blue column *just yet* but it is getting to the point that the dems are building an organization called “battleground texas” which is aimed at turning texas blue at some point in the next 20 years and georgia will probably be in play two or three elections down the road. the republican strategy of “pray to god we win ohio or florida” does not matter when the democrats can win virginia or colorado or new mexico and force you to spend ad money and organizers in north carolina.
people are voting in a way you don’t want to them to vote?
make it harder for them to vote.
