Have you been purged?

According to a new report by the Brennan Center for Justice, “States purged more than 16 million voters from the rolls between 2014 and 2016.” The report comes just a few weeks after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of Ohio’s voter purge system. That ruling cleared the way for more states to conduct purges that disproportionately impact low-income and minority voters. The increase in purged voters was most significant in parts of the country with a history of racial discrimination that, until the Supreme Court’s Shelby County v. Holder decision in 2013, were required to seek pre-approval of changes to their voting laws from the Department of Justice. (ThinkProgress)
