Get Off My Precinct!
A bit late posting here as I’m traveling abroad. I had to draw this one before the election results, but given what happened in Georgia, it’s still unfortunately relevant. Gerrymandering and other voter suppression efforts have gotten so extreme now that Democrats must win by huge margins to actually, you know, win. Things have gotten so bad that elections have become about whether to keep what little democracy we have left. We are in an emergency situation for our country, yet many media outlets spent the week before the election obsessing over the non-story of the “caravan.” If anything, voter suppression efforts should be receiving that kind of breathless coverage.
The specific issue with Native American voting rights I’m referring to in panel four is described here.
