JIM CROW RETURNS: Millions of Minority Voters Threatened by Electoral Purge, is the most-read story ever on Al Jazeera America’s website.
If you haven’t read it yet – the results of a six-month intensive investigation – read it now.
And tonight, Thursday, at 9pm, watch reports on this investigation on Al Jazeera America's America Tonight (enter your zip code to find it on your TV).
The Palast team has ripped the lid off “Interstate Crosscheck” – a system used by 27 states, almost all under Republican control, which claims to find illegal “double voters,” those who vote in the same election in two different states.
It took months, but journalists got their hands on 2.1 million of the names of the so-called “double voters” accused by Crosscheck.
Are YOU a criminal double voter? Look up your name right now.
Use the search boxes to search through Crosscheck lists from Georgia and Virginia. If your name appears on this list, you are a potential double voter. Voting twice is a felony, punishable by 2 to 10 years in prison. Guilty or not, voters whose names appear on these lists could be purged from voter rolls.
This is the first time these lists have been made public since the Crosscheck program began in 2005. Al Jazeera America obtained these lists through open records requests.
The total Crosscheck list contains 6,951,484 voters from 28 states. These two lists obtained by Al Jazeera America represent 1,703,958 voters.
