Voter Purging
Why your vote may not count in the next election

August 12, 2017




Voter purging: powerful forces do not want you to cast your ballot during elections. They seek to deny you your voice in national affairs.
Chronicle news & opinion

(NATIONAL) -- There's an important new story in Mother Jones that every American, who wants their vote to count at the ballot box, needs to read.

There are strong and well funded efforts underway in America today to deny you your right to vote, to have your voice heard in who gets elected and what laws get passed.

Here's how important voter purging-- an assault on the democratic process -- is and what the consequences can be. From that Mother Jones piece:

"Ohio has purged 2 million voters from 2011 to 2016, more than any other state, including 1.2 million for infrequent voting. At least 144,000 voters in Ohio’s three largest counties, home to Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati, were purged since the 2012 election, with voters in Democratic-leaning neighborhoods twice as likely to be removed as those in Republican-leaning ones, according to a Reuters analysis.

These purges can have a big impact in a close election. During the 2000 election, Florida wrongly labeled 12,000 registered voters as ex-felons and scrubbed them from the voter rolls—a number that was 22 times George W. Bush’s ultimate 537-vote margin of victory.

In 2004, the Ohio Republican Party sent a mailing to 232,000 newly registered voters, urging them to vote Republican. When 35,000 mailers were returned as undeliverable, the GOP tried to purge those voters from the rolls. The Democratic National Committee sued its Republican counterpart, and a federal court blocked the purge.

This is serious American journalism about a deadly serious effort to deny you your right to vote and to distort Democracy in order to cheat on the outcomes of elections.
