Rep. Lincoln Davis

The United Steelworkers have launched a campaign against voter suppression, releasing three new videos that highlight validly-registered voters who were denied the right to vote under right-wing voter suppression efforts. The first shows former Rep. Lincoln Davis from Tennessee, who was purged from voting records despite having voted in the same precinct since 1995.

The second features Gilbert Paar, a veteran in Wisconsin who was prevented from voting using his military identification as his required form of ID. Retiree and veteran Clifford Glass, also in Tennessee, was rejected from voting because he lost his driver's license after an accident when he was younger.

Activists opposed to these types of laws can volunteer to help the USW fight back and can download materials to help spread the word about people being denied the rights in the name of stopping nonexistent "voter fraud."

USW will continue to issue videos of others who have been denied the right to vote.
