Greg Palast‏

BREAKING: Today we're releasing the names of the 90,000 residents of #LasVegas and #Reno purged in 2016 and 2017 by #Nevada’s Republican Secretary of State, Barbara K. Cegavske.

BREAKING: Are YOU one of the 550,000 voters on the #Illinois Purge List? Check NOW. You have until Sunday, Oct 21 to register online.

BREAKING: #Indiana has purged no less than 20,000 voters in violation of a federal court order and in total has cancelled the registrations of a mind-boggling 469,000 voters — the majority using suspect methods.

6. It can't be said enough...the repubs LIE, CHEAT and STEAL to get power that doesn't rightfully

belong to them. There is no other explanation for a significant minority of the people getting so much power on a consistent basis.

15. "Purges" included Democrats and Republican voters alike

The purge was to bring voter registration records up to date. If your voter registration didn't match the info on your drivers' license then it got put into a "frozen" file. A lot of people who were frozen in 2016 were still allowed to vote, they just had to re-register and they were good to go.

If your photo ID drivers license says your name is "Robert E. Jones" and you're registered to vote as "Bob Jones" they will not accept the discrepancy any more. That's why those old voter registration records were purged or frozen. It happened to everyone regardless of party affiliation. We have to stop over-reacting to this by claiming that it's a nefarious plot by Republicans. Any name change or address change means you need to re-register, and then you're done.

It's not a big deal.

16. The evidence of racial bias in these purges is quite clear.

If it affects everyone equally, why does it happen so frequently with Republican election supervisors?

Check the egregious examples in the Georgia governor race now, the 2000 Florida presidential election, among numerous examples - Ohio recently, North Carolina too. A Google search will do the trick. Go beyond the headlines and look at the evidence cited by election watchers like Greg Palast as well as mainstream journalists. Follow the identity of the companies that are often contracted by Republican leadership to do these purges.

It's an intentional strategy which is indeed nefarious, racist, and partisan, and it sometimes results in a winning margin for the Republican candidate. To suggest otherwise is counterfactual.

18. OK I don't disagree with you

... but this is winnable! We need to keep our cool and find a way to beat the RWNJs at their own game.

Then when we win in November, we get busy and change all their racist and unfair regulations.

19. Fair enough.

The winning margin in some states, including Georgia and Florida, may hinge on effective responses to purging strategies, which includes re-registration when it's possible. Either way, the midterms matter.
