Phony Phone Calls in Florida and Virginia
Keep reading for several examples of voter suppression schemes and laws that could disenfranchise millions of voters. If you see possible voter suppression tactics in your community, contact the Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice or the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights (1-866-OUR-VOTE). –Britt Middleton
Voter suppression groups have targeted African-American, Latino and elderly voters in Virginia and Florida through illegal phone calls instructing voters that they can vote by phone. Voting by phone is illegal.
