Big News across the Country in the Voter Suppression Battle

A lot happened last week on the nationwide issue of voter suppression, resulting in some good and bad news.  In Pennsylvania, democracy lost when a Republican judge ruled to uphold the state's restrictive voter ID law. The case will now head to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.  We saw steps (albeit baby steps) of progress in Florida and Ohio, though.  In Florida, a federal court reinstated early voting in five counties where the law would unjustly affect African-American voters, while  Ohio’s Secretary of State announced that all counties would follow a uniform early-voting policy, preventing early-voting discrimination.
