States purged 16 million voters from rolls before the 2016 election - Mostly Black and Brown folks!

"For the two years before the 2016 election, the number of purged voters across the county increased 33 percent over the two years before the 2008 presidential election, according to the report. 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."

Please spread the word that ALL VOTERS should check their registrations 2 months before any election and recheck them again 1 month before the election to make sure they catch any bogus purging - if a voter is purged from the rolls then re-register immediately.

Here are the deadlines for voter registration for every state. Most are 30 days or less ahead of elections.  https://www.vote.org/voter-registration-deadlines/
