​​​​​So frequent changes to election administration procedure has a disproportionate effect on new Americans. Therefore, it is important for the government to consider the impact that these challenges have on what should otherwise be free, fair and equitable access to the right to vote. I say equitable because what is needed for fair access to voting maybe different for a new American than for someone who's lived in this country for a long time.
