2. What about the people with no computer?

Or computer skills? Seniors, maybe.
My feeling is that POCs are being targeted. (Am I wrong in that assumption?) They generally vote Dem. The hostile reception they might receive in person might deter some from checking at a county courthouse or the like.
And black Americans are about 9% less likely than whites to have high-speed Internet access.(Pew survey) 9% doesn't seem like much, but if the purged voters are heavily POC....
The Repubs don't have to purge ALL of any one group, just some pruning here and there can be enough to throw an election.

If people really want to vote, they will find a way, with help from voting advocacy groups. If we put up intelligent resistance, what republicans are doing is nothing more than circle-jerking, but if we cry in our beer, they then have a chance to get somewhere.

You could call your local county board of elections, to check. I check every year, a few months before the election. I also check again,
(and again) before the election to make sure I am still on the roll. My voting precincts voter are primarily POC, I am white, and it angers me that my fellow citizens could be disenfranchised, by the voter suppression schemes. It takes persistence though, calling the board of elections for your county, working with the local democratic party organization, or simply asking for guidance.

7. I agree. And don't just hold our hands and cry when they pull those stunts.

They are desperate, their past antics have not worked as well as planned and they see their voters dying off, so they have to try to bring down our voters, but they succeed only if we let them.

In Wisconsin you can log into myvote.wi.gov to check your status. If you don't have access to a computer, contact your county or town clerk.
