3:35pm ET - As candidates rally
to get out the vote, others are secretly steering voters away from the polls
with misinformation and fear. For
example, you might receive a phone call saying that your political party is
actually voting on Wednesday instead of tomorrow, or you could receive a flyer
warning you that you could be arrested at the poll if you have an outstanding
parking ticket. The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law has identified these and other types of manipulative voter suppression efforts. The
organization’s president and executive director Barbara Arnwine joins the show to talk about these tactics, debunk
the lies and confusion, and share tips for voters. You can also follow Barbara on twitter.
