WASHINGTON, 3 Nov – Grigory Dubovitsky. The upcoming midterm elections in the U.S. Congress can pass a record for these elections, voter turnout, according to many American experts.

In absolute terms, supporters of the Democrats more than the Republicans, but current US laws do not guarantee the victory of the “blue” (as happened two years ago).
A number of such laws is associated with restrictions of access of citizens to vote. Opponents of these measures call them “voter suppression” (voter suppression). presents an overview of restrictions that will likely have an impact on the upcoming elections.
