• Arizona Creates Special Voting Day for Spanish-Speaking Citizens

    Arizona catches a lot of flak for — let's be honest — its asshattery when it comes to how it treats the Hispanic community. For a state that was technically born in Mexico, Arizona spends a lot of time obsessing over the president's birth certificate and the legal papers of anyone with a darkened skin tone.

    Fortunately, for lovers of civil liberties and cultural tolerance, all that is in the past. In fact, Maricopa County, AZ has opened new frontiers in the accommodation of Spanish-speaking voters, by creating a special Election Day just for them…

    The document, which was attached to updated voter registration cards that were requested in person, lists the general election date as Nov. 8 in Spanish. An English translation on the document lists the correct date, Nov. 6.

    Between this and the news that Spanish-speaking voters in Florida are receiving phone calls from anonymous persons informing them that they can vote over the phone, it's clear we've turned a page in our voter suppression wars.

    And opened a whole new chapter.
