Here is the general voter suppression blog.
This blog will try to list some of the more blatant voter suppression efforts attempted in Louisiana by the criminal, racist, unpatriotic Republican party.
GOP trying to reduce number of early voting days
Three days before early voting begins, @Louisiana_sos and @AGJeffLandry appeal a federal court ruling that, among other things, extends the number of early voting days. They seek an opinion from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. pic.twitter.com/IVtcDJx2Uf— Jarvis DeBerry (@jarvisdeberry) October 13, 2020

Registration website goes down on last day of Registration, and also on voter registration day
Virginia, Florida, Louisiana systems shut down the night of registration deadline. GOP putting fake ballot boxes in California. Voters waiting NINE HOURS to vote. THAT is voter suppression, not whatever cow shit this is 🙄— 🇺🇸 🏳️🌈 Drew Kaiser 🏳️🌈 🇺🇸 (@quantum_mystic) October 13, 2020
