Help Prevent Republican Election Fraud

DU ACTIVIST CORPS ACTION: HELP PREVENT REPUBLICAN ELECTION FRAUD

For years now, Republicans have been quietly using "voter fraud" laws to perpetrate election fraud. According to a recent story in the American Prospect, "Using the Department of Justice, friendly governors, and its usual propaganda outlets, the GOP has propagated the myth of voter fraud to purge the rolls of non-Republicans."

Democrats all over the country need to check their registrations and make sure they are still eligible to vote in the November elections. This week's action is to write an email or letter to Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean and encourage him to make all Democrats aware that they may be prevented from voting in November, and to take action now to prevent any problems on election day.


CONTACT INFORMATION

Howard Dean
Democratic National Committee
430 S. Capitol St. SE
Washington, DC 20003

Web contact form: http://www.democrats.org/page/s/contact




TALKING POINTS
  • Republicans have set up vote caging operations all over the country.
  • Republicans plan to exploit the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) by using electronic databases to scrub registered Democrats from voter rolls.
  • We need to counter by advising all Democrats to check their voter registration between now and October.
  • In addition, Democrats should be reminded to vote in person, and in a group if possible.
  • It is especially critical that Democrats in SWING STATES check that they are eligible to vote.
TIPS FOR SUCCESS

Be brief... be polite... be coherent!!

You can find a sample letter here.

Because, as we all know. Mexicans MUST be allowed to vote in the US election!

Unless fraud is committed (which I will acknowlege GOP members did in ?MI? (see FEC, not the tin hat conspiracy sites) to make people go to the wrong polling place.) If you cant get to the right polling place, then you are not smart enough to vote and your vote should not count.

Frankly I think voter rolls should be purged of Democrats who continue to vote in election after election long after they have died. The right to vote is for the living.

So is the strategy to stop Republican voter fraud while allowing the Democrats to do it?

It's kind of like the plan to ban talk radio but not touch the real news (PBS, NBC, NPR).

By the way, talking points and a website on the original post? Moderator?

The Democrats certainly had no problem when it came out that Obama "scrubbed" his opponent's nomination petitions in Chicago.

A real good start would be to scrub the voter registration rolls of all non-citizens, since only US citizens are legally allowed to vote.

The only proof about voter fraud I have seen during this prsidencial campaign has been on the Dem. side. A women working in a voting place was yelling to vote for Obama...not allowed, this is called intimidation and against the voting rules and nothing was done. Another woman was standing outside with signs to vot for Obama which isn't allowed either.
