It’s a day we all look forward to with pride: striding up the stairs of your local decrepit school building to cast a vote for whomever is the least horrible choice. That person, God willing, or Electoral College willing, will become the next President of the United States. Although a new crop of eager young people have turned eighteen in the past four years, the majority of them have decided it’s just not really a decision they want to make. One such young person commented, “I just can’t have the weight of the world on my shoulders like that,” another said, “If it wasn’t for the fact that the Electoral College makes my vote moot, I would be really worried.” Luckily, for a large number of African Americans, they don’t have to bother themselves with making a decision this November, as new voting laws have disenfranchised a large percentage of them.
