Found this story, dated 9/30 at Brad Blog and this is serious stuff. Please, if you’re not registered to vote, get to it. If you are registered, make sure you are still on the rolls. Get it done before someone takes your vote. As CBS reported last week, in 19 states, including Maryland, the purge of voters is under way.
[The Sept. 30] CBS Evening News finally covered what may well be the November Surprise that we’ve been trying to warn about for monthshere at The BRAD BLOG: Massive voter roll purges being done in secret, with little or no oversight, and often under federal Justice Department cover, in states and counties around the country.
And the Democrats, who likely have the most to lose via such secret purges, are doing little or nothing about it.
The CBS story, posted below (appx 2 mins) starts with an elderly New Jersey voter who was suddenly removed from the voting rolls after thirty years, for apparently no reason whatsoever, before launching into findings from a new non-partisan Brennan Center for Justice study on “Voter Purges”.
We’ve yet to read this Brennan report, but the brief coverage from tonight’s Evening News notes 10,000 voters purged in Mississippi, 21,000 in Louisiana and “to top it off, another new study discovered 19 states are ignoring federal law (the National Voter Registration Act), banning systematic purges within 90 days of a federal election.”
Among those 19 are a number of battleground states. The report lists: Alabama, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Masachusetts, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Texas and Washington, as places where massive purges have recently taken place.
CBS ends by noting that their New Jersey voter has now been restored to the rolls, but they warn, “come Election Day, don’t count on thousands of others being as fortunate”…
In other words, get to it. Rock the Vote can help get you registered and to verify your current registration. Time is of the essence. Voter deadlines are coming up fast.
