Abstract:     
Voting is an essential feature of democracy but throughout the western world, the suppression of the vote has become an integral part of politics by both liberals and conservatives. During the 1960s and 1970s in the United States the right to vote was largely settled. However, in recent years those on the political right have developed systemic and systematic efforts to suppress voting across a series of spectrums for purposes of winning political campaigns. Wepropose to examine the empirical evidence undergirding patterns of voter suppression in the United States, and offer a series of policy recommendations for resolving the problem. Special attention will be given to the United States Justice Department investigations of patterns of voter suppression in Texas and North Carolina.
