College GOP Leader Doesn't Want Campus Voting Registration

Leigh Thomas, chairwoman of the High Point University College Republicans in North Carolina, expressed the GOP's negative attitude toward the right to vote. Bree Binder, a representative of Turning Point, a conservative non-profit student group, asked Thomas for permission to conduct a voter registration drive on campus. Thomas responded, “I understand the registration process. I’m just not sure if this is something I would want to have on this High Point University campus, the registration of voting.” Finally she gave her bottom line: “I don’t want to have any voting registration happening on this campus with students.” She was also upset that the exchange was recorded.

I get it. She doesn't want this program because she doesn't approve of it. She doesn't approve it because it wasn't done two years ago. It wasn't done two years go because she didn't want it. She didn't want it because she doesn't approve of it...Love me, love me, love me, I'm a conservative!

Ultimately, she doesn't want it because the Republicans depend on voter suppression and gerrymandering to stay in office.
