uspol (small +) 

one bit of hope: Voter suppression has been happening all along, but people are paying a lot more attention to it this time. People are learning what a big problem it is. Could be an opportunity to fix it (if we win).

Also, given how many people are getting to do early voting and vote-by-mail for the first time, and seeing how much better and easier it is, I hope that it increases demand to keep doing it in the future. Every state should offer no-excuse absentee voting!

voter suppression could be a dog whistle for " they won't let us commit voter fraud"
