Election Integrity: A sampling of ongoing reports on widespread voter suppression
October 21, 2008
Volunteers at the Center for Media and Democracy’s Election Protection Wiki continue to collect reports of ongoing voter suppression.
Among the reports on the Election Protection Wiki from the last few days:
Michigan: GOP admits foreclosure voter suppression scheme.
California voters say they were duped into registering as Republicans
West Virginia voters say electronic voting machines changed their votes from Democrats to Republicans.
US Supreme Court sides with Ohio election officials against striking 200,000 from the voting roles.
And the Obama campaign has asked the Justice Department to expand the special prosecutor’s DOJ politicization probe to see if the ACORN accusations are related.
The volunteers are collecting information on polling place shortages, voting machine malfunctions, ballot misprints, voter roll purges, voter intimidation and other election threats. At the same time they are contributing to issue articles on exit polls, student disenfranchisement, the ACORN controversy and other important topics. All of this is being collected into a central location for use by media, activists, advocates and policy-makers on and after election day.
We need every hand we can get to help us get this information ready in time. Come to the Election Protection Wiki and help keep this election honest.
Readers like you make Guernica possible. Please show your support.
