Your Call 102108 Is voter suppression widespread?

How widespread is voter suppression? On the next Your Call, we'll have a discussion about tactics used by political parties to discourage or prohibit eligible voters from casting their votes.

It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Bob Schaeffer with Florida's Center for Civic Participation

Tomás Garduño, the statewide organizer for the South West Organizing Project, a non-partisan, non-profit group in New Mexico that educates minority citizens.
