The great double standard of our election system

The Hill,  May 2, 2019

The 2016 post-election report recorded that:

In Texas, poll workers in three counties failed and, in some cases, refused to inform voters of the newly expanded options for satisfying the voter ID requirement, in violation of a court order.

In Pennsylvania, over two and half years after the state’s strict voter ID law was struck down, poll workers in four counties were still asking all voters to show ID, when state law only requires this of first-time voters.

In Wisconsin, the League of Women Voters’ election observers documented instances of poll workers unlawfully refusing or failing to give voters provisional ballots (as required) and insisting voters present a voter ID with an address that matches their registration address (not required).
