Now that the “underdogs” President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are in office, it seems like it shook many red states are trying to make it harder for people to vote. Vice President Kamala Harris joins the show to discuss the importance of using your voting rights no matter how hard it may seem. She breaks down the various law changes and also how voting does influence change.
VP Harris shares that she’s met with states like Georgia, Florida, and Texas legislatures to fight for certain voting rights to not be overturned. Along with the issue of voting rights, she also celebrated the courage of the Texas Democrats for walking out to stand up for their state.
Groups have filed over nine lawsuits across the state of Georgia dealing with voting laws in hopes to get them overturned. She explains that voting rights are critical and why citizens should never take them for granted even though they’re under attack.

“This is ridiculous,” says Anita Heard, a 80-year-old who was first in line to vote at 6 this morning and is still waiting to cast her ballot. “Of course,” she says when I ask her if she plans to stay. “I worked for 40 years — where else am I going?” #gapol pic.twitter.com/4Cd8nwagG9— Greg Bluestein (@bluestein) June 9, 2020

Once again my neighbors in #SWATL are experiencing #VoterSuppression. Polls were supposed to open an hour ago and we are not being admitted. Apparently we don’t have the paper needed for these new voting machines. #votingday #atlanta pic.twitter.com/R0gPxqMaSM— Alyssa Thys (@alyssa_thys) June 9, 2020

Many have been waiting for 2+hours. When I asked how they’re feeling, one woman told me simply: “determined.” #GAPrimary pic.twitter.com/AOpvvuE97h
