Election Protection Hotline: 866-OUR-VOTE

Early Voting starts today in North Carolina and runs through November 3rd. It's a great opportunity for people to exercise their right to vote, but because so many North Carolinians will use it, Early Voting is also an opportunity for those who would cause mischief at polling places.

Certain individuals and organizations may intimidate or challenge voters at the polls, in some cases bullying people into leaving the polling place without casting a ballot. We want to help people protect their vote and we're calling on you!

Don't Get Discouraged, Get Informed!

If you experience or witness any problems at a polling place, you can call our toll-free hotline, 866-OUR-VOTE (that's 866-687-8683) and get live help or advice from an Election Protection expert.

More importantly, spread the word! Post this image on Facebook, tweet it to your friends and family, share it with organizations you're involved with, and write it down and take it with you to the polls so you can share it with others there!

The above emailed to me today from Democracy NC http://www.democracy-nc.org/ - good place to get NC voting info if you need it.

1. Thank you

I will pass it around. This is from the latest INDEPENDENT:

True the Vote will "attempt to disqualify some voters and slow down the process for others..."

"True the Vote listed 286 volunteers in 60 North Carolina counties, including 71 in Wake County alone. "We expect a major effort," says NC Central law professor Irving Joyner, leading a legal team organized by the NAACP to help anyone prevented from voting."

Can you believe we have this BS in the 21st century?

2. I can't believe that shit in an alleged "Democracy"

We need some NEW LAWS and I'm not talking about "Voter ID" - all those need to be overturned. We need some new voting rights laws - laws that protect and defend voting rights.

3. Absolutely

what we are seeing is not to be tolerated.

If we don't overhaul the election systemt, we WILL be seeing the end of democracy in America I do believe.

There is NO reason why any US citizen should be FIGHTING to hang onto their voting rights today.

It's absurd. Undermines EVERYTHING. Makes me so mad.
