Suppressing votes is morally wrong


WOULD THE Republican Party like it if Democrats across the country tried to suppress the votes of eligible citizens who are likely to vote Republican (“Targeting lies and liars,’’ Editorial, Dec. 29)? It is outrageous and morally wrong for either political party to attempt to suppress the vote of the opposition.

All the Republican primary candidates for president should be asked if they support GOP efforts to suppress the vote of young people, people of color, and the poor. Are we really a “justice for all’’ society if we allow voter suppression?
