We can hope (ahem) but I remain staggered and appalled about how much voter suppression cheating takes place in US politics. It seems routine for democrats in contested areas to wait several hours to vote.

I just heard today that at the last general election in the UK some people had to queue for an hour with some losing out completely when the polls closed. Parliament itself is acting to ensure that all who want to vote can do so.

Wheras in the US, I think DC views it all as a big joke
