Description

In 2016 I went to vote at the same polling place where I was registered and had voted for a decade. This time I was told my name wasn’t on the voter rolls and was asked if wanted a provisional ballot. Reluctantly, I voted with a provisional ballot because I knew a dirty little secret about US voting: Provisional ballots do not have to be counted.


After casting my ballot, I decided to investigate my vanished voter registration, and wondered if my vote vanished because of Interstate Crosscheck, centralized corporate voting systems, or the Russians?
