Don't Take No For an Answer: Protecting Against Election Theft

Don't Take No For an Answer: Protecting Against Election Theft

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Greg Palast wrote in the Huffington Post yesterday, that while Republicans had the media searching for links between Barack Obama and ACORN, RNC operatives were completing one of the most massive voter suppression and purging efforts in US history. RFK, Jr.'s piece asserts that none of ACORN's bad registration signatures will impact the election; but an obstacle course of barriers for November 4 voters, including purging legitimate voters from the list, and creating mayhem and long lines at the polls, has been created on behalf of Republicans.

In its story about what might go wrong on Election Day, Time Magazine offers advice of what you can do to make sure your vote counts. Tips include: contacting your local registrar or going to canivote.org to verify your info; making sure you know your polling location and ID requirements; not taking no for an answer. If you get turned away, request an emergency paper ballot or cast a provisional ballot if you must. You can also call 866-OUR-VOTE if you have an issue.

Here's to hoping both sides play fair on Election Day!

Just tell them that you are going to vote for McCain and then they will whisk you away to a VIP voting chamber.

Good thing there's no right to vote for president, anyway.

This is so scary. I can live with whatever happens on Tuesday, as long as Americans aren't kept from voting! I don't understand why the election boards aren't prepared for such high turn out when it has been predicted for the past year.

Wow, this is a bit disturbing. I don't like seeing voter fraud from ANYONE, and if this is true it disappoints me in a way nothing else has for my candidate this campaign season.
