"We are looking at voters who are at risk of being purged from the rolls because of things that are on the books. The law shouldn't even be there, basically says, hey, if you don't vote a few times, then you can't vote again. We're going to de-register you, so you have to start all over again. It makes no sense at all."

"This is something that is a part of our coalition that is critical. We know that we are a record African American turnout. We'll see wave elections and sweep lots of folks in office, 2012, for example, four years later, we did not achieve the same levels of turnout. And we lost a good president. Not to mention many other elections as well. So, you have to see that kind of record turnouts in the African-American community."
A day after the Democratic debate in Atlanta, presidential candidates sent text messages to over 300,000 people Thursday whose voter registrations could be canceled in Georgia.
U.S. Sen. Cory Booker, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar and entrepreneur Andrew Yang participated in the phone and text bank to prevent dormant voter registrations from being canceled next month.
The candidates used a computer program to send dozens of text messages.
They even competed with each other to reach as many voters as one could.
When voters responded, the candidates interacted with them, looked up their registration information and told them how to re-register before it's too late.
The event was organized by Fair Fight Action, an organization founded by Stacey Abrams.
