Voting rights are sacred

The movement to control who votes in this country is in my opinion a sacrilege. The Supreme Court decision on the Voting Rights Act has allowed a series of restrictions that are throw backs to the time when certain groups were prevented from exercising their constitutional rights. Instead of trying to rig elections by these draconian measures election officials and all members of the government should seek to widen the opportunities to cast votes. There is scant evidence that voter fraud exists ,and this is not the way to have people elected. This pure and simply is a political strategy to limit who votes so that certain candidates will have an advantage. This must not stand, and must be challenged in the courts as well as by a tidal wave of citizen outrage.
