Voter suppression makes it incredibly hard hard to vote, register to vote, or even stay on voter rolls. If voters are not proactive – even a couple months before an election – they may be ineligible to cast a ballot despite their constitutional right to do so. People who have moved addresses, recently became citizens, missed voting in a previous election year, changed their name, and others face higher barriers to staying on voter rolls. These issues compound in communities historically ignored and disenfranchised in elections: people of color, youth, immigrants, people experiencing poverty, people experiencing homelessness, and people whose first language is not English.
