If you're merely flagged by #Crosscheck in IN you're automatically—without any due process—scrubbed from voter rolls gregpalast.com/civil-rights-g…
But thanks to a lawsuit brought by @BrennanCenter on behalf of the @NAACP & @LWV this is being challenged in court gregpalast.com/civil-rights-g…

My lawyer had to threaten #Georgia Secretary of State #BrianKemp with a lawsuit to force him to turn over the names of over half a million voters whose citizenship rights he quietly extinguished. gregpalast.com/gops-brian-kem…
My database expert went through #BrianKemp's #Georgia Purge List name by name and found:

1 Thousands who supposedly left the state but remain in Georgia
2 Thousands who moved from one end of town to another
3 Someone who moved from one apartment to another in the same building
#GeorgiaPurgeList: 108,000 of the names were on #KrisKobach's notorious #InterstateCrosscheck list — and only 2,000 of these purged #Crosscheck voters have left the state! gregpalast.com/gops-brian-kem…

There’s voter registration deadlines TODAY in 18 states:

AZ, AK, FL, GA, HI*, IL*, IN, KY, LA*, MI, MS, NV*, NM, OH, PA, TN, TX, UT*

If you haven’t checked your registration yet, do so NOW at vote.org

*For more on deadlines visit: nytimes.com/2018/10/06/us/…
Don’t assume you’re OK because you’ve not moved and have voted in the same place for years. States have been conducting deep purges, and many perfectly valid voter registrations have disappeared — often without notice. rollingstone.com/politics/polit…
For example, in #Georgia in 2017, GOP Secretary of State #BrianKemp removed 591,000 voters from the rolls—that’s 1 in 10 registrations in a single year!

If you live in Georgia you can find out if you’ve been purged here:

Rather than face me in court, #Georgia Secretary of State #BrianKemp coughed up the first and last names and addresses of every one of the 591,000 voters he purged from the rolls in 2017. Notably, however, he left out the voter’s middle names. How curious. gregpalast.com/why-i-am-suing…
#BrianKemp also refused — despite the requirements of transparency in the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 — to state in detail WHY he’s purged each of the monstrously large number of #Georgia voters. gregpalast.com/why-i-am-suing… #StopTheSteal
Therefore, I have come to Atlanta to join with co-plaintiffs from @RPCoalition, @NationalSCLC, @GAPeoplesAgenda & @NewGAProject to give #BrianKemp a final warning: Put these purged voters back before the election or see us in federal court. gregpalast.com/georgia-civil-… #StopTheSteal

#Florida study finds "mail ballots were 10 times more likely to be rejected than votes cast at early #voting sites or on #election day" and "ballots cast by youngest voters, blacks and Hispanics were much more likely to be rejected."

DON'T GO POSTAL!!!

Around a third of Americans mail in their ballot — boy is that dangerous. There’s a million ways to not count your mail-in ballot. gregpalast.com/have-you-check…
DON'T GO POSTAL—OR I'LL BE TEMPTED TO GO POSTAL ON YOU!!!

STUDY: "Younger and racial and ethnic minority voters casting Vote By Mail ballots were at least twice as likely as older and white voters to have their VBM ballot rejected in the presidential elections of 2012 and 2016." aclufl.org/en/publication…

We have a massive non-count of votes in America. Over one million ballots nationwide — in any election — are never counted. They are disqualified for cockamamie technical reasons. gregpalast.com/have-you-check…
I’m not talking about some guy with machines changing a vote from Democrat to Republican on a computer. I’m talking about if you mail in your ballot, they can challenge it and toss it. gregpalast.com/have-you-check… #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud #StopTheSteal
People worry about getting their vote stolen by a machine, so they mail it in. But you just went double or nothing with your vote, because that makes it easier for them. The number one way #KrisKobach won the #KansasPrimary was by disqualifying ballots that were mailed in.
