In Rhode Island it appears there was an attempt by the powers that be to make sure that fewer people voted. Part of this is because almost everyone in the state’s Democratic party infrastructure is for Hillary Clinton, and polls were showing an advantage for Bernie Sanders. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“The Rhode Island Board of Elections announced this week that two-thirds of the state’s polling places would remain closed for the upcoming primary as a costs savings measure.
According to WPRI, the Board of Elections plans to cut costs by opening only 144 of the state’s 419 polling places for the April 26 primary.”*
