Montana: University students protest GOP vote suppression
The Missoulian reports: About 18 people, most of them University of Montana students, rallied outside the Republican Party’s Missoula office Thursday, accusing the GOP of trying to suppress their votes.
The protest, organized by Forward Montana, a nonprofit that encourages political involvement, was in response to the state Republican Party’s challenge to the eligibility of 6,000 registered voters n 3,422 of whom live in Missoula County. ...
Protesters at the rally stood on the sidewalk on Brooks Street hoisting placards with slogans such as “Suppress This” or “Is Missoula Next” superimposed over a map of Florida.
Montana GOP executive director Jacob Eaton said it is “absurd” to say his party is trying to suppress students’ votes. The party is just trying to ensure that election laws are obeyed. -- University of Montana students protest GOP challenge of voter registrations
