Opinion: CT not immune to fight against voting rights

Across the nation, Republican legislators are implementing harsh new restrictions to make it harder for people of color, young people and lower-income people to vote. As an Arizona state legislator explained, “we don’t mind putting security measures in that won’t let everybody vote.” In a display of twisted logic, GOP lawmakers claim that making it more difficult to vote is needed to restore voter confidence in the integrity of elections, confidence they themselves sabotaged, mainly among voters in their own party, by relentless and baseless claims about a stolen election.
