image for President Obama Issues Executive Order Mandating That All African-Americans Must Vote

WASHINGTON, DC - In a stunning moment, President Obama signed an executive order that mandates all African-Americans to vote. Obama signed the order in a meeting in Detroit on Thursday.

"We shouldn't be making it harder to vote, we should be making it easier to vote," Obama said. "The notion that this day and age we would be deliberately trying to restrict the franchise makes no sense and at the state and local levels you can push back against that and make sure we're expanding the franchise not restricting it."

Political scientists have debated mandatory voting in the U.S. as voter turnout has been at record lows.

Only 36.4 percent of Americans voted in the 2014 elections, however 92% of African-Americans voted for Obama.
