The voter suppression that stole Georgia's governor race in 2018
Suppressed screengrab

In the new short film “Suppressed: The Fight to Vote,” Brave New Films exposes rampant voter suppression that affected the outcome of the 2018 midterm election in Georgia and the threat it poses to our elections all across the nation in 2020. The issues Georgians faced included polling place closures, voter purges, missing absentee ballots, extreme wait times and a host of voter ID issues—all of which disproportionately prevented people of color from casting their ballots.


Watch “Suppressed” to discover the insidious tactics politicians use across the country to suppress the vote and stay in power. Host a screening and stay informed at FightToVote.org
