Down Here On The Ground
I wrote yesterday about US Civil Rights Groups requesting International Election Monitors to be the polls in crucial states where we can expect voter intimidation and electoral hankypanky. The OCSE has had representatives in Ohio since October 4. But lets take a second to thank some of the real heroes of this election. The committed men and women who have been on the streets, ringing doorbells and registering people and encouraging them to get out and vote! This is a photo from todays Toledo Blade of volunteers out on the street in Sylvania, Ohio going from door to door. The gentleman in the background is hero of mine, the Author of the great and passionate blog in Toledo of which I am a member and occasional co author, Man With The Mudrake. Thanks Mr. Mudrake...Remember, request a paper ballot and if you can, vote early! It's your right!
