Poll watchers ?

To all my friends in Ohio, Florida and basically all states. Do we have a group of trained strong willed poll watchers ready for election day ? The Republicans will go to any length to oust Obama. I hope we are prepared for shenanigans at the polls. I will be at local Democratic headquarters this afternoon to affirm our preparation.

1. Yes. The Democrats have a corps of election protection volunteers, "Voter Advocates" in every state

In VA we plan coverage of every precinct.

2. Video the vote

I saw a piece on Public Access TV about Video the Vote, a movement where citizens make visual recordings of long lines and other happenings at the polls. That seems like a great plan to me.

3. Don't video inside the polling station. It's illegal in many places. If you see a problem, the

Democrats will have poll watchers and in some places an election protection person on site. Find them, and/or alert the election officials. Don't get in peoples faces with video cameras.
