Seattle resident tells us about voter suppression in Pennsylvania

Susanna Williams:
My mother lives in Pennsylvania. She has been a full time resident since 1985. Her driver's license reads "S. Dreisbach-Williams". The DOL made that decision for her. That's not what she wrote on the application. Her voter registration reads "Susan Dreisbach-Williams". The two don't match. Her ability to cast a vote in this November's election rests on the whims and partisan feelings of an individual elections director and / or poll worker. She is a 64 year old well educated white woman and a consistent voter. Pennsylvania is a scary, scary place these days.
