New voting restrictions have been introduced in 2011 and 2012, discouraging certain demographics for voting, causing fundamentally immoral concerns. The U.S Supreme Court has allowed 16 states, with the longest history of racial discrimination, to change voting requirements or restrictions without the approval of the federal government. This has allowed certain states to introduce restrictions to make it harder to register to vote by reducing early voting, removing names from voter rolls, and by requiring ID’s that had never been needed before. These new restrictions are seen by many as a strategy by the republican side to prevent younger more progressive and diverse people from voting. Instead, encouraging a much older and more conservative population to vote, something that can be denominated as unconstitutional.
