Any election is not as straight forward as the general public might think. Official voter suppression efforts like voter id as well as unofficial efforts like spreading false information, intimidation or even down right dirty tricks like, ripping up voter registration forms or robo calling African-Americans and telling them "Democrats vote on weds day" abound . Have you personally experience any voter suppression efforts?

More like mind suppression. Recent studies show that Fox News causes more brain damage than heavy drinking.
