Reality Check! Voting Rights Are LGBT Rights

Location: Grand Ballroom

For years, voter suppression measures have sought to silence many groups of committed citizens, but for much of the public, the breaking point came during the 2012 Presidential Election. LGBT people, especially those who do not come from the privileged classes, are increasingly threatened by laws that prevent them from exercising their civic duty. A growing number of states have found more legally sophisticated ways of adopting measures that tremendously impact voters who are transgender. Eliminating early or flexible voting, requiring IDs for all voters, and changing residency requirements are just a few examples of the dogged policies put in place solely intended to block those in small groups from having a voice against the tyrannical outcry of those who possess power.
