How to use suppression in a sentence?

  1. Stacey Abrams:

    For me it was déjà vu. I am very aware of the frailty and the fallacy of the notion of acts of democracy in Georgia, we watched the secretary of state in 2018 set up a system of voter suppression and we watched the current secretary of state continue the same work. The reality is this was a mix of incompetence, malfeasance. It was a deliberate indifference to voters and it's a solvable problem.

  2. The Washington Post:

    Voter ID laws have proved popular despite Democratic arguments that they amount to voter suppression, and some activists have concluded that they do less to suppress the vote than they initially feared.

  3. Michael Levin:

    The electrical communication amongst cells is really important for tumor suppression. The bigger picture is to understand how these voltages are passed among cells and how they control the transfer of chemical signals among cells, we need to crack this bioelectrical code. We really need to figure out how computations in tissues and decision making about pattern and cell behavior and so on are encoded in electrical signaling. That is sort of the next ten years.

  4. Sarah Riggs Amico:

    Any candidate claiming victory based on partial results is dishonoring the voices of hundreds of thousands of voters who, in good faith, turned in absentee ballots or stood in long lines late into the night in the pouring rain to make their voices heard, dismissing or ignoring valid ballots from these voters is an audacious affront to the entire voting rights movement and takes a page straight from the voter suppression playbook championed by Republicans like( Governor) Brian Kemp and State Brad Raffensperger.

  5. Joe Biden:

    There's one thing every senator, every American, should remember : History has never been kind to those who have sided with voter suppression over voters rights. And it'll be even less kind for those who side with elections subversion, so I asked every elected official in America : How do you want to be remembered ?
