Upcoming Voter Purge

The Boards of Registrars from each Alabama County has compiled a list of voters they intend to purge from the list at the order of the Secretary of State. This is an outrage. Voting is not a privilege to be revoked on a whim. Voting is a RIGHT which should be held sacred. Below you will find a link to the names in Colbert County which are scheduled to be removed. Please review and make sure that your name is not among those listed. Contact your county board of Registrars to ensure that your name has not been removed. If it has, you may be required to register to vote all over again. We have an important election next year. We have seen what has been done by those who have no respect for government or for the rights of ALL citizens. Don't let anyone keep you from participating in the choosing of our political leaders!
