ABOUT THE FILM

"Suppressed and Sabotaged: The Fight To Vote" (2022) by Robert Greenwald (Director of Outfoxed, Walmart: The High Cost of Low Price, and Making A Killing: Guns Greed and the NRA) is a powerful documentary about the growing threat of voter suppression and election sabotage to our 2022 midterm elections.

In 2021, 19 states passed 34 new voter laws following the Big Lie of the 2020 election. The film focuses on this recent wave of voter suppression and subversion laws being enacted in states, and how the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial race between Stacey Abrams and Brian Kemp provides a blueprint for today’s voter suppression laws across the country.

"Suppressed and Sabotaged: The Fight To Vote" now includes perspectives from voters in Arizona, Florida, Texas, and Georgia that highlight how these new laws will affect their constitutional right to vote.

Suppression tactics covered in the film include: Registration hurdles; Polling place closures; Voter purges; Missing absentee ballots; Extreme wait times at polling locations; Exact match disqualifications; New vote by mail limitations; Changes to ballot collection and drop off and more.

Voter suppression laws disproportionately affect American Students, Senior Citizens, Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and People of Color from casting their ballots. Suppressed and Sabotaged 2022 is a call to action against the calculated, unconstitutional and racist attacks intended to suppress the right to vote in America.
