Leaked GOP Voter Suppression Playbook (Satire)

Don’t have enough votes to get elected? Don’t worry. A new satirical guide shows how to win by cheating: Suppress your opponent’s voters.

The guide illustrates proven Republican tactics to cling to power by racist voter suppression, gerrymandering, disinformation and intimidation. And the urgent need of passing FOR THE PEOPLE ACT to protect American democracy.

The guide is a satire, but the threat to American democracy is real.

Freedom to Vote

  • Makes a MAJOR difference for our right to vote, for everyday people’s power against big money, for fair redistricting and an end to gerrymandering, and for a government that truly works for every single American.
  • Expands access to voting for all eligible Americans by setting fair, national standards such as a guaranteed two weeks of early voting; automatic voter registration; vote-by-mail for all who want it, postage prepaid; voter-verified paper ballots; strict rules to prohibit purging of eligible voters from the rolls.
  • Blocks partisan and racial gerrymandering by creating legally enforceable standards  so politicians can’t abuse their redistricting power for their own advantage.
  • Makes democracy more transparent by making secret money organizations disclose their donors, making sure voters know who is trying to influence our voices and our votes, and making sure anyone who violates disclosure rules is held accountable.
  • Breaks the grip of big money in politics with a small-donor driven matching funds system — to let candidates run for the House of Representatives if states opt-in without relying on special interests, and so public officials can better reflect the constituencies they serve. It also shines a light on secret-spending groups, so that voters know who is influencing their votes.
