Investigative reporter Greg Palast discussed his recently released report of voter suppression in Georgia that he prepared for the ACLU.
Greg Palast continues the necessary voter anti-suppression crusade
Greg Palast released a report by the Palast Investigative Fund titled Georgia Voter Roll Purge Errors that concluded the State had likely removed in 2019 the voter registrations of nearly 200,000 Georgia citizens on the grounds that they had moved from the address on their voter registration application. However, none of these citizens had moved, according to Advanced Address List Hygiene. Unsurprisingly, the state’s removals will likely affect the most vulnerable: young voters, voters of lower-income, and citizens of racial groups that have been denied their sacred right to vote in the past. Members of the Georgia General Assembly must rectify this egregious error.
Applying this standard methodology, the Fund found that of the 313,243 Georgia voters who supposedly moved from their registration addresses, 198,351 had not moved. Yet, the State removed their voter registrations.
Greg Palast is known for his investigative reports for BBC, The Guardian, and Rolling Stone. His bestsellers include The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.
Palast’s new book How Trump Stole 2020 has just been released. Last week the ACLU published Palast’s report titled Georgia Voter Roll Purge Errors.Palast-Fund-ACLU_Georgia-Voter-Purge-Errors-Download
