Cleaver: CBC Vote ID Tour Will Register Voters


Rep. Cleaver

CBC Chairman Emanuel Cleaver talks on CBC Voter ID/Suppression Tour.  CBC Chair Cleaver has been in meetings regarding a soon to be announced voter suppression/voter ID tour.  After a voter ID/suppression tour today, he mentioned that the tour would include registering new voters.  Much like the CBC’s August jobs tour, the CBC will travel to several cities.  Details should come soon. and more will be discussed at Wednesday’s group CBC meeting.  There is talk that the CBC will join with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus in some way on the tour but that has not been confirmed.  Many members of the CBC and CHC are concerned about a ton of new voter ID laws they feel will threaten participation among minority, elderly and young voters.
