The unbalanced enforcement of drug laws can be seen as a voter suppression strategy in the US, since convicts lose their right to vote (unless they get it reinstated by a judge after they have served their sentence). There are other examples. "Motor voter" in California got a lot of criticism from the right before it was enacted.
