True the Vote

Ballot box bullies are coming to a state near you — and true to wingnut tradition, will be doing their best to do the exact opposite of what they say they’re doing.

Common Cause, League of Women Voters, the NAACP and other organizations are training poll watchers to report any intimidating activity. Targeted states include Colorado, Florida, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Virginia.

  1. You know what it even better than being an election protection volunteer? Volunteer to be an election officer. I did it once. It is a long day, in Virginia from 5 AM until the votes are counted. In a presidential year that could be as late as 11 PM. But it is great, in the event that some Republican volunteer is intimidating voters you can ask them to leave, if they don’t, you have the authority to call the police and force them to leave. I have never understood why Democrats and advocacy organizations do not put more energy into recruiting election officers.
