    If they have a photo ID or a voter registration card, they'll be fine.

    I realize that's like asking for a bone marrow sample, but this is important.

    Some? Probably. Their are racists in both camps. But its pretty clear the GOP doesnt like minorities to vote because it mainly goes to the Dems.

    No. If your name runs across this crosscheck program it states that you are a fraudster and not allowed to vote, period.

The Crosscheck instructions for county election officers state, “Social Security numbers are included for verification; the numbers might or might not match.”

    Twenty-three percent of the names — nearly 1.6 million of them — lack matching middle names. “Jr.” and “Sr.” are ignored, potentially disenfranchising two generations in the same family. And, notably, of those who may have voted twice in the 2012 presidential election, 27 percent were listed as “inactive” voters, meaning that almost 1.9 million may not even have voted once in that race, according to Crosscheck’s own records."

    Database is incredibly flawed.
    quite possibly - but you seem to tie a dataset which is designed to catch double voting as one that is uniquely targeting blacks and you labeled this thread Jim Crow. Why do you think that measures designed to catch double voting is the equivalent of seeking to punish blacks?

    Re: Jim Crow returns Millions of minority voters threatened by electoral purge

    Interesting, I was just talking to my husband last night how we haven't received our polling information yet. So reading this got me thinking about it again. We are both registered, I am independent and he is a democrat. I just looked on the website below under registration information to confirm where we are supposed to go and no surprise - even though we live at the same address and have for over 8 years and have both voted at the same church the entire time, suddenly his place has been moved about a mile away to some kind of public housing complex but mine remains at the church. Then when I put our address under the general polling place, the church comes up. Kind of suspicious when you think about it. Especially considering he received no notification of the move. Maybe just a coincidence, maybe not.

    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Double voters also mainly vote Democrat.

    Perhaps he believes that blacks tend to be double voters?

    1.) The dataset is incredibly flawed. Leaning on false positives. "Crosscheck is incredibly broad with a strong bias toward removing people from the rolls. And the means for verifying voter identity—sending postcards to addresses on file—puts the burden of proof on individual voters and is almost designed to take people off the rolls; with false positives and duplicate names, there’s no guarantee that anyone gets their verification card, to say nothing of voters who have moved or don’t have a permanent address." Al Jazeera America’s reveals massive GOP voter suppression effort: Millions of minorities are being purged from voter rolls ahead of midterm elections.

    2.)As the article states: "The three states’ lists are heavily weighted with names such as Jackson, Garcia, Patel and Kim — ones common among minorities, who vote overwhelmingly Democratic. Indeed, fully 1 in 7 African-Americans in those 27 states, plus the state of Washington (which enrolled in Crosscheck but has decided not to utilize the results), are listed as under suspicion of having voted twice. This also applies to 1 in 8 Asian-Americans and 1 in 8 Hispanic voters. White voters too — 1 in 11 — are at risk of having their names scrubbed from the voter rolls, though not as vulnerable as minorities." Jim Crow returns | Al Jazeera America

    Name one that was removed from registered voter lists due to this program.
