The Colorado voter purge list contains a whopping 769,436 names. Are you on it?
Colorado’s Online Registration Deadline is Monday, October 29.
ALERT! [Updated: Oct 22, 2018] Colorado Secretary of State Wayne W. Williams has stonewalled our request for complete information about the voters he has purged ”” that is, CANCELLED off the voter rolls. Unlike other states, he is keeping secret the address of voters, which the law requires he make public.
As a result of Williams’ stubborn violation of the anti-secrecy provisions of the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) of 1993, we cannot provide the confirming information we have given voters in several other states.
Therefore, especially if you have a common name such as James Brown, you could get a “false positive” ”” that is, we can correctly confirm that some James Browns have been purged, but we can’t confirm that it is you. If you are on the list of those tagged as purged/cancelled, check your registration with the Secretary of State’s website and RE-REGISTER if necessary. Also, in Colorado, most cancelled voters can RE-REGISTER AT THE POLLS. If you want a mail-in ballot, you must register by October 29.
Please note: PR flacks for the Secretary of State have stated that there are no voters purged or cancelled. This is absolutely not true””don’t be fooled. This list of voters, marked “cancelled,” came directly from the Secretary of State himself.
We are sorry for the deficiencies in the information on this site compared to our other state look-up pages This is only and solely due to the withholding of information by the Secretary of State, a political partisan, in violation of the NVRA.
Our prime concern is Williams’ participation in the racially biased, partisan purge program directed by Kris Kobach of Kansas””exposed in my investigation for Rolling Stone.
As a result of Williams’ continued hiding of public information, attorneys for the Palast Investigative Fund have sent him a 90-day Notice that we are preparing a lawsuit against him in federal court in Denver under the NVRA. We have already filed suit against Brian Kemp of Georgia.
