The Voter Suppression Follies – An Editorial Cartoon Portfolio

By Andrew David Cox

 

My latest editorial cartoon yet again addressed voting rights. Here’s a collection of my cartoons addressing the issue, many local to Boone and Watauga County specifically, from my time at The Appalachian. The cartoons were local to the High Country, but are indicative of a larger statewide issue that has dominated headlines for the past two years.
