3. K&R and I would like to add...
Plan to take the day off if possible.
Help others with transportation, questions, finding ways to solve time contraint problems.
Even if you have no problems, be alert to others who may be getting challenged at the polls. See if there is something you can to to help.

6. Also...threaten a run on the banks. Spread it all over the internet.
We need more than a phone number to call. It's going to be revolution time if this election is stolen.

9. All great EXCEPT I say avoid Common Cause - I don't trust them
The past 3 years, Common Cause has shown up at various election integrity related meetings, and I really don't think their first priority is election integrity. Therefore, I would skip the survey at their site that's on your list, Gary. Here is an example:

Common Cause is on the WRONG side of the issue for Prop. 11 in CA (they support prop. 11) -- in a nutshell, here is why people should vote NO on 11

NO -- PROP 11 -- "Redistricting" CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT & STATUTE

Changes the authority for redistricting from the state legislature to a citizens' commission selecte d through a complex multilevel process that gives Republicans a bonus over their registration numbers. Democrats lose. Arnold's "Voters' First" PAC is heavily funding this along
with all the major Republican fat cats and a sprinkling of Dems. We're talking well over $7 million going to start turning CA red. Arguments in favor of this allude to "fairness" and "democracy." REGISTRATION in our state is heavily Democratic. So, passing this takes it away.

Prop. 11 must be defeated if we are to maintain our majority and protect our coastline.

15. NEED HELP CHOOSING AN ACTION? Here's help
I made this chart for the film STEALING AMERICA: Vote By Vote's action site. It shows you what you can do from home, what you can do with a little time, etc.

Help Me Choose An Action

18. I pray that on Election Day, if God forbid there are problems, these steps can remedy them
Greg Palast urged people to vote early for this very reason. Because if there is funny business tomorrow, how can we possibly alert the right people in time?! I am praying that election lawyers and college poll watchers will swarm all polling stations.
