HILLARY: “Number one, voter suppression. We saw what happened in Georgia where Stacey Abrams should be governor of that state.
(Cheering and Applause)
Registered voters were kept off the rolls. Their registrations just piled up in some back office with no intention ever enroll them so that they could actually vote. We also saw what happened in 2016. Experts estimate that anywhere from 27,000 to 200,000 Wisconsin citizen voters, predominantly in Milwaukee, were turned away from the polls. That's a lot of potential voters. They showed up, but maybe they didn't have the correct form of identification, maybe the name on their driver's license included a middle name or initial that wasn't on their voter registration, but officials made every excuse in the book to prevent certain people from voting in that election. Voter purging is another form of voter suppression.”
