The Difference Between Voter Fraud and Voter Suppression

I came across this today, too – The Nation’s Joel Barkin and Christian Smith-Socaris discuss the need for universal registration and voter reform.

I couldn’t agree more. A universal registration procedure, along with a national voter registration database, is one way for both sides to easily put to bed the allegations of voter fraud. That is one discussion that has gone on for way too long.


  1. Barkin and Smith-Socaris aren’t from The Nation. Barkin is my old boss at Progressive States Network. Christian works with him now on democracy policy (he joined staff after I left).

    Their policy shop is sharp — thanks for highlighting this piece.
