Sure, Republican voter suppression tactics have evolved. (I’ve noted the particular irony of their efforts to keep Native Americans from voting, since they’re the only Americans who aren’t immigrants.)

But if you updated it all, the conclusions would be the same.
The only important difference is that this time, with a sociopath unchecked in the White House, our democracy itself is in peril.
