Unveiling Voter Disenfranchisement in America


Voter purging is a process that helps states and counties maintain up-to-date voter rolls and data by canceling registrations for voters who are no longer eligible, including those who have died or moved out of state.

Where Purges Are Happening


The Voter Purge Project is a collaboration among three non-profit, 501c3 organizations: The Ohio Voter Project, ACORN International, and the Labor Neighbor Research & Training Center. Our team combs through voter reports from various states to find and bring attention to discrepancies or unethical voter purging attempts.


Founded in 2019 by Steve Tingley-Hock,  the Ohio Voter Project began when Tingley-Hock discovered 40,000 eligible voters on a list of names that the state planned to purge later that year.

ACORN International is a 200,000 member organization working in 15 countries. ACORN is led by Wade Rathke, 50+ year veteran of community (ACORN and NWRO), labor (SEIU and United Labor Unions), and electoral organizing (Project Vote, Initiatives).

Labor Neighbor Research & Training Center provides support and assistance through education, publications, and other resources to community and worker-centered efforts to further develop effective organizational responses to current issues.
