“Do we have a right not to vote? The Supreme Court suggests we don’t”

Dan Smith and Michael Herron NYDN oped:

More fundamentally, do we have a right not to vote?

Should infrequent voters be removed from the rolls merely for not exercising their franchise? Is the right to vote only protected when it is used? Or do we tacitly renege the franchise when we skip a couple elections?

The Supreme Court has ruled and do not be surprised if other states jump on the court’s decision and begin purging infrequent voters. When it comes to the right to vote, it’s now use it or lose it.
