Election Protection: Now’s the Time

Election Protection: Now’s the Time

Dear james m,


Elections shouldn’t be complicated: Every eligible citizen should be able to register to vote, every registered voter should be able to cast a ballot, and every ballot should be counted accurately.

Unfortunately, as you know, things don’t always go that smoothly. That’s why Common Cause has put "all hands on deck" to help Protect the Vote.

Please make a gift today in support of our election protection efforts!

We’re working around the clock between now and Election Day to educate thousands of citizens about their voting rights. For example:

* In Georgia, we’re contacting 100,000 voters who do not have a valid driver’s license to make sure they know they’ll need a current photo ID in order to vote.

* In New Mexico, we’re recruiting and training volunteer poll workers to be on hand on Election Day in the four counties with the worst track records on voting rights.

* In Pennsylvania, we’re coordinating with Democracy Matters, Common Cause’s youth affiliate, to help protect students and first-time voters from intimidation and misinformation.

We’ve got a strong team on the ground ready to Protect the Vote. But with your help we can do even more.

Please make a gift today to help Protect the Vote.

Let’s make sure that this election goes down in the history books for something other than voting mishaps. Thanks for all you’re doing to Protect the Vote!


Susannah Goodman,

and the rest of the team at Common Cause

P.S. Have a question about voting? Call the toll-free election protection hotline 1-866-OUR-VOTE. It’s staffed by legal volunteers who can answer questions about polling place locations, student voting, absentee voting and much more. Keep the number handy in case you have any problems on Election Day. And please pass it on to your friends!

Also, thanx for signing my petitions, et al, please consider sharing them. Also, since Admin. of change.org aren't allowing me to invite people to do my actions lately and are switching my urls for my petitions so when I invite people off their site they can't get to the petition either (ergo 3 possible urls for each petition), here's a few of my latest actions; do as few or as many as you'd like (there are 3 linx for each petition because admin. switches between the 3 of them so people trying to sign the petition can‘t get to it): This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Haiti disaster anniversary, please, do what you can: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9033 This petition on change.org: Haiti disaster anniversary: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2?share_id=yIpWHEHxri&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2 http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Green, Indigenous, Native American, etc., actions: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9026 This petition on change.org: Green, Indigenous, Native American, acts: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous_native_american_acts?share_id=NHvTtQadfP&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, holiday: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9024 This petition on change.org: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. M.L.
