How To Vote

Tips from the Brad blog:
What to do if it happens to you:

* Call poll supervisors to observe the problem.
* Fill out a problem report.
* Refuse to vote on that machine.
* Request that the machine be taken out of service.
* Get a serial number of the machine if possible (may be difficult in many cases).
* Tell other voters in line which machine it was and that they should NOT vote on that machine!
* Report it to county/town election office.
* Report it to the Secretary of State.
* Call local reporters and tell them the story.
* Call voter problem hotlines (eg. 866-MYVOTE1 and 866-OUR-VOTE) and report it.
* Contact bloggers and Election Integrity websites.
* Raise holy hell.

REMINDER: Please bring a video camera/cell phone camera when you go to vote so you can document these problems on video tape, and then upload them to and YouTube!

My daughter, aged 19 and going to uni, reports waiting in line for 8 hours to vote. She's at a school on the Gulf of Mexico coast of Florida, but her home is on the other side of the state in Miami. She applied for a postal ballot. It was never delivered, of course -- voter suppression.

So she drove 350 km back to Miami on Sunday to do early voting in person. (With parents like me and the politically [and otherwise] rabid ex-Mrs. Bukko, she had no choice.) How many other students did the same, though? How many others had cars, money and motivation to do so? Suppression works!
