From an Electoral College built to preserve slavery to broken voting machines foisted on low-income communities of color, the way we count and handle our votes perpetuates racism and oppression. Hear from the front lines of the 2016 presidential recount about how this “Electoral Jim Crow” makes black votes more likely to go uncounted, how this spoiled system scares people into voting their fears instead of their values, and what we can do about it.
