Voter Suppression

On February 13, 2018, The Red Bank League of Women Voters presented an excellent program on Voter Suppression. Guest speaker, Seth Levy, of the Southern Poverty Law Center, spoke to a full room at the Shrewsbury Historical Society Building. Levy discussed how many Americans are losing their right to vote through both deliberate policies and the unintended consequences of legislation that was designed to facilitate voting.

"Some people in this country think voting is a right. Other people think it is a privilege. Look for candidates who share your values when it comes to voting," says Levy.
