DOJ to Monitor Early Voting in Dallas and Harris County

The idiot in the Tax office in Harris county in charge of assigning election judges is a King Street Patriot and has been appointing their people as GOP Judges. The NAACP and other have complained and the DOJ is going to be monitoring early voting in Dallas and Harris county http://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/2012/October/12-crt-1263.html
Justice Department to Monitor Early Voting in Texas

The Justice Department announced today that it will monitor portions of the early voting period for the Nov. 6, 2012, general election in Dallas and Harris Counties, Texas, to ensure compliance with the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The Voting Rights Act prohibits discrimination in the election process on the basis of race, color or membership in a minority language group. Early voting in Dallas and Harris Counties begins on Monday, October 22.

Justice Department personnel will monitor polling place activities during early voting in these two counties. Civil Rights Division attorneys will coordinate federal activities and maintain contact with local election officials.

Each year, the Justice Department deploys hundreds of federal observers from the Office of Personnel Management, as well as departmental staff, to monitor elections across the country. To file complaints about discriminatory voting practices, including acts of harassment or intimidation, voters may call the Voting Section of the Justice Departmentís Civil Rights Division at 1-800-253-3931.

Visit www.justice.gov/crt/voting/index.php for more information about the Voting Rights Act and other federal voting laws.


This is good news given the number of King Street idiots who may be alternative election judges or clerks for early voting in Harris County.
