You’ve voted at the same polling place for years, did you know a provision in the Georgia Election Integrity Act (Senate Bill 202) allows your voter status to be challenged without merit?
In recent years, tens of thousands of Georgia voters vanished from voter rolls. In addition to “purges” by government agencies, new digital voter vigilantes are submitting similar, unsubstantiated requests to county election offices.
A closer look at these efforts suggests that many recent voter challenge efforts are targeted – seeking to remove young, Black, Asian American and/or voters from historically disenfranchised groups.
Our new film, Vigilante: Georgia’s Voter Suppression Hitman, exposes this Jim Crow 2.0 scheme, and the people behind it.
In addition, Yvette Nicole Brown, star of Community and the upcoming Disenchanted, has lent her voice to an important and necessary video message that people must take it upon themselves to save their vote.
To raise awareness about these voter challenges, the Palast Investigative team has partnered with leading state civic engagement and civil rights advocates, launching the SaveMyVote2022 campaign to make sure Georgia voters know how to respond to voter vigilantes and their unrelenting efforts to challenges the lawful right to vote.
Warning: The challenges continue, so bookmark the SaveMyVote2022 website and keep checking back!
