They’re hostile to counting the vote in the United States for voters of color and for young people, that’s just the truth. We still have an apartheid vote counting system and they will do everything to get in your way.
There were 7.9 million votes not counted or voters blocked in the 2016 election. That’s not a Greg Palast figure. It’s in my book, How Trump Stole 2020, but the figure’s from the United States Election Assistance Commission, which keeps track not only of our votes, but the votes we throw away, the votes we don’t count. Other nations would be flabbergasted to learn that we literally throw away millions of ballots. And they’re not of any color, it’s 900% more likely that your vote will be disqualified if you’re black than if you’re white.
In this edition of the Election Crimes Bulletin, first broadcast on June 23, 2020, Palast and Bernstein go on the hunt for America’s vanished voters — and encourage you to take action to protect your vote now!
