In swing-state Colorado, the Republican Secretary of State conducted the biggest purge of voters in history, dumping a fifth of all registrations.  Guess their color.

In swing-state Florida, the state is refusing to accept about 85,000 new registrations from voter drives – overwhelming Black voters.

In swing state New Mexico, HALF of the Democrats of Mora, a dirt poor and overwhelmingly Hispanic county, found their registrations disappeared this year, courtesy of a Republican voting contractor.

In swing states Ohio and Nevada, new federal law is knocking out tens of thousands of voters who lost their homes to foreclosure.

  2. Good, important information for a generaly misinformed public. Note the digital divide is in full effect with many unwealthy persons of color having no online access. As per US. facism media control, important information of illegal plutocrat activities does not appear on facist controlled network television from whence most of public gets its disinformation. Then again, mespekes to the choir. Will make small contribution to your efforts as funds permit.

  3. Well, when you can’t win an election by persuading enough people to vote for you, you can try to win by locking out enough people from voting for the other guy. It looks like that’s been the Republican tactic for the last decade.

    Vote for Bush! Lose your home! Then not be able to vote for anyone else! What an effective domestic policy/election procedures platform…
