Election Protection Wiki News Roundup

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.

Update [2008-10-21 21:54:42 by Todd Beeton]:The pushback against the ACORN bullshit has gotten more aggressive lately. Great to see Brave New Films has gotten in on the act with this must-see video. Pass it around to anyone you know who is buying the right-wing's "voter fraud" absurdity.

Re: Election Protection Wiki News Roundup

I am very worried about GOP fraud stealing this election.  I hope that the polls stay as friendly as today as that will make it that much harder to happen.

I am somewhat glad though to see that the hard line GOP is still behind Palin.  If they stay with her brand they are sure to be the minority party for a generation.
