Calling all Lees, Kims, Nguyens, and Patels: if you have the same first and last name as another registered voter in another state -- your vote might be purged.

The “Interstate Crosscheck” program is disenrolling registered voters of color under the guise of preventing voter fraud. In 28 states, the program compiles lists of citizens who allegedly registered in more than one state and who can cast multiple ballots. On this confidential list contains seven million “potential criminals” including one in seven voters of color in the Crosscheck states.

Join 18MR, Daily Kos, and Rolling Stone investigative reporter Greg Palast to call the Dept. of Justice to investigate and release the names of voters on the “Interstate Crosscheck” Purge list.

The Interstate Crosscheck program “disproportionately threatens solid Democratic constituencies: young, black, Hispanic and Asian-American voters – with some of the biggest possible purges underway in Ohio and North Carolina, two crucial swing states with tight Senate races.

Tens of thousands of voters have already been purged in a single state. As many as one million may lose their right to vote by this November.
