Are there cases of Democrats engaging in voter suppression?

Modern Republicans are often accused of trying to [suppress the right to vote]( for minorities.Are there cases where the modern Democratic party (ie post Jim Crow) is accused of suppressing the right to vote for demographics that are less likely to vote for them? Do they use the same tactics as Republicans are accused of, or are they different?Examples: - closing of specific polling places not likely to vote for their party - requiring specific IDs less likely to be owned by minorities - purging voter registrations of specific demographics - keeping voter registrations of specific demographics on hold - misinforming specific demographics about voting location or time.
