Yes, the hit film featuring Rosario Dawson, Shailene Woodley, Willie Nelson and a look inside real live Rolling Stone investigation exposing the scheme that’s swiping a million votes in North Carolina, Ohio and the states that pick our President and Senate.
The soul of this nation is on the line. So,…
with the very generous approval of our distributor, I am releasing our film while it is still completing its sold-out, smash-hit runs in Hollywood, New York and nationwide—for no charge until midnight on Election Night.
America needs the film more than we need the money (though, we DESPERATELY do need money—read below).
For the last few days leading up to the election, you can view the complete film that John Perkins calls, “Hilarious, totally entertaining, heart-breaking and absolutely MUST be seen by EVERYBODY.”
… And for now through Election night, it’s stone cold free.
No tricks. Free. Though I am asking those of you who can, to make a tax-deductible donation when you stream the film.
Most important is that you pass on this link to your friends, fellow activists — and especially to your IN-activated friends, you know, your cousin who could use a fire under his butt.
If you can donate, from now through election week, we are sponsoring a Generosity page — it’s like Kickstarter for non-profits—where you can donate to The Palast Investigative Fund and get a signed DVD of the film or the companion book—and a tax deduction (are you listening, Donald?). And if you really want to help us here in Ohio, make a $1,000 contribution: you’ll be listed in the credits as a producer (or $500 for Co-Producer) on our broadcast and post-election edition of the film.
It’s for our investigation right now and through the election in Ohio and North Carolina, Maybe you remember our shocker of a report for Democracy Now! in 2012, where we discovered that, after waiting 5 hours in line, every single Black person in early voting was handed an ABSENTEE ballots (which can be challenged). ‘
We’re back to bust the next stories. I’m in Ohio right now with a camera crew—and we have crew in North Carolina—preparing for souls-to-the-polls day coverage. And I have no idea how I’m going to pay for this— unless you become a Souls to the Polls Sponsor.
We will keep digging but are asking you to make a donation no matter how large or small and help to pay for our shovels.
I thank you and my sleepless team thanks you.
This is Greg Palast, in Dayton, Ohio, reporting …until they pull the pencil from my cold, dead hand.

Greg Palast in Ohio on GOP Effort to Remove African Americans from Voter Rolls in Battleground State
Democracy Now! on Nov 8, 2016
http://democracynow.org – In an on-the-ground report from the battleground state of Ohio, investigative reporter Greg Palast has uncovered the latest in vote suppression tactics led by Republicans that could threaten the integrity of the vote in Ohio and North Carolina. On some polling machines, audit protection functions have been shut off, and African Americans and Hispanics are being scrubbed from the voter rolls through a system called Crosscheck. “It’s a brand-new Jim Crow,” Palast says. “Today, on Election Day, they’re not going to use white sheets to keep way black voters. Today, they’re using spreadsheets.”
