Tactic: Voter Purges

Residence: Fulton county

Occupation: Activist

After she moved within her voting district, Stacey Hopkins and three of her adult children were part of the 1.4 million Georgia voters targeted by Kemp. They received postcards classifying them as inactive voters, designated to be purged off of the voting rolls using a method known as the postcard trick. She and her children had all voted in the election prior to receiving the card so they couldn’t have been deemed inactive voters. She was not a new registrant, so Kemp couldn’t have used the flawed Crosscheck matching system to purge her registration. She still hasn’t heard an explanation for why she, and many more in her majority black community, received the notice in the mail.
