Aug. 5, 2008 Obama gets the legal teams ready to fight back...

http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0808/Obama_signs...

Obama general counsel Bob Bauer emails lawyers and law students that the campaign is setting up an "unprecedented" new "voter protection" program -- a standard feature of Democratic campaigns, but given the general enthusiasm for Obama, and the specific enthusiasm (according to my anecdotal sense) among legal types,probably on a very large scale.


Democratic National Committee Voter Assistance hot line: 1-888-Dem-Vote

Record of Advocacy:

http://www.barackobama.com/pdf/issues/HowardConvocation...

Barack Obama has worked to promote civil rights and fairness in the criminal justice system throughout his career. As a community organizer, Obama helped 150,000 African Americans register to vote. As a civil rights lawyer, Obama litigated employment discrimination, housing discrimination, and voting rights cases. As a State Senator, Obama passed one of the country's first racial profiling laws and helped reform a broken death penalty system. And in the U.S. Senate, Obama has been a leading advocate for protecting the right to vote, helping to reauthorize the Voting Rights Act and leading the opposition against discriminatory barriers to voting.


Some of the other advocates looking out for voter access and election legitimacy:
