Voter Suppression in Fresno County
This Is Why It's Hard to Elect Progressives in Fresno
The polling place at the Unitarian Universalist church was eliminated in November because of a “Black Lives Matter” sign. Brandi Orth, a Republican and the Fresno County Clerk/Registrar of Voters, said she moved the polling place after receiving complaints. Where was the new polling place located? It was moved to the Cross City evangelical Christian mega church with three huge crosses out front.

Voter repression is not something that only happens in far away places. It is also happening in Fresno County. The 25,000 students of CSU-Fresno do not have a polling place on campus. Additionally, on any given election day there are about 3,000 inmates at the Fresno County Jail that can’t get out to vote. Two thirds of them are awaiting trial and have not been convicted of a crime. They are not provided even a single polling booth either.
