Rachel Maddow Show: Steal Back Your Vote

Rachel Maddow talks to Robert Kennedy Jr. about the systematic purging of voters off of the rolls nationwide, and what you can do about it.


On her MSNBC program this week Rachel Maddow did a special segment on voter suppression, looking at the Help America Vote Act, what she called the “Katherine Harris Effect”, and the issue of systemic voter purges. Could these shadowy moves to disenfranchise voters turn the tide on election day? As much as 19 percent of voters have been purged from the rolls in Colorado alone. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. stopped by the program to speak more about these issues, which he wrote about in the current issue of Rolling Stone.
