How To Protect Your Vote
This is a video produced by the Obama Campaign which explains how votes are suppressed and how to be prepared to make sure your vote is counted tomorrow. The Republicans count on a low voter turnout to win and their sense of self righteousness empowers them to believe that winning is their right by any means neccessary. They can't steal the election from an informed electorate!
Despite all their accusations, even the McCain campaign admit they can't make the voter fraud claim stick:
For weeks, Republican leaders have warned that widely reported problems with fake voter registrations could result in a flood of phony votes in pivotal states.
But Ronald Michaelson, a veteran election administrator and member of the McCain-Palin Honest and Open Election Committee, said in an interview that he could not name a single instance in which this had occurred.
“Do we have a documented instance of voting fraud that resulted from a phony registration form? No, I can’t cite one, chapter and verse,” he said.
Which makes their accusations a form of fraud in its own right, doesn't it? One that's been falsely used to fuel "Republicans’ invocation of legal power to scrutinize voters, demands for U.S. Justice Department intervention and court orders, and criminal investigations."
