While it may not be possible to "Rig" an election (see Monday's Daily: Rig? How It Works), there are unfortunately still efforts to suppress the rights of individuals to vote through deceptive tactics, voter intimidation and false information.
Although modernized voting methods have eliminated some traditional practices, there are many attempts to deny citizens the opportunity to cast a ballot and have it counted, particularly in disenfranchised communities.
To help you protect your right to vote and others, a 101 on Election Protection:
Laws in Your State: Education is always the first line of defense. For the voting laws in your state regarding Voter Registration, Absentee Voting and Early Voting, see our past Dailys:
Misinformation: Technology can be a friend or foe. Robocalls, E-mail, Text, Facebook, Twitter. While any organized campaign is using these tools to get-out-the-vote, they can also be used to spread misinformation. Be wary of any messages alerting you to changes in voter requirements, polling hours and locations.
Report Voting Irregularities & Infractions: Attempts to intimidate and confuse voters have already begun. The DNC, non-partisan election and allied orgs have hotlines and volunteer legal experts standing by to report deceptive practices and answer your questions.
Send us your state's election protection resources, and we will post on DemList!
