Are we witnessing a SILENT COUP?
Your right to vote is at risk unless action is taken in response to widespread measures aimed at preventing people from casting a ballot. As the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act approaches, local officials across America are accused of trying to deprive millions of citizens of their right to go to the polls. This threat to our democracy could affect the outcome of the 2016 election.
Help us to produce THE SILENT COUP, a documentary film about the current attack on voting rights. Please take a few minutes to watch the short video, which depicts how voter suppression is at an all-time high in America. In Florida alone, hundreds of thousands of people are being prevented from voting. Here’s the math:
- President Obama’s margin of victory in Florida in 2012 was 73,000.
- There were nearly 100,000 fewer new voter registrations in 2012 than during the same period in 2008.
- 200,000 people did not vote in Florida in 2012 due to the long voter lines, researchers have found.
This pattern is being repeated across America.
