We all know (at least I hope we all know) about efforts in various states around the country to impose voter suppression laws, aimed at primarily ethnic, older and younger voters, who are more likely to vote for President Obama next week; or now, if there's early voting in your state.

So in attempts to reach potential voters who might be affected by these efforts, documentary filmmaker Stanley Nelson (Freedom Riders), along with the Advancement Project, a national civil and human rights advocacy organization, have created a series of short films released this week, designed to inform voters about the issue.

One of these films, called simply Bettye and Debra, reveals one such example of voter suppression in Wisconsin.

    Wow. I'm surprised she didn't early vote after going through all of this. All of this work and money spent just to be able to cast one single, important vote. Everyone go vote!!! If you work full time, your employer must legally allow you the opportunity to go cast your vote. Do not be bullied out of voting. People died and were assaulted in order for you to be able to vote.
