Election Protection Information

With the election around the corner and early voting well under way, it is past time to post information about Election Protection. There are a ton of resources out there and it is up to us to make sure that every voter has the information that will protect them and their vote. Please add any election protection websites or phone numbers that you come across.

The main phone number to remember is 1-866-OUR-VOTE (1-866-687-8683)

Obama has two websites devoted to reporting voting problems:

Thanks Coyote. I have to do something to feel like I am contributing. Hopefully someone will forward or link to it and it will actually help somebody who they attempt to disenfranchise. If even one vote gets counted that otherwise would not, then it was well worth the time.
