Do you know your rights at the polls?

by: ACLUm

Mon Nov 05, 2012 at 14:43:16 PM EST

Big swing states like Ohio, Virginia and Florida have been attracting the most concern about voter fraud and voter suppression, but Massachusetts is not immune.

From incorrect information about rules at the polls for both voters and observers, to objections to people voting absentee, to reports of robocalls telling people to vote on the wrong day--despite Hurricane Sandy, the election is still Tuesday--there are already reports in Massachusetts about problems that could interfere with people exercising their right to vote in this year's election, Tuesday, Nov. 6.

ACLUm :: Do you know your rights at the polls?
Do you know your rights at the polls? If not, there's still time to learn more about voting rights before heading to the polls on Tuesday.

For example:

  • You DO NOT need to show photo ID to vote, but you may be asked for proof of residency.
  • You can bring someone to help you in the voting booth.
  • You can report voter intimidation or other problems by calling 866-OUR-VOTE (866-687-8683), a nonpartisan hotline that will be staffed by volunteer Massachusetts lawyers on Election Day. You can also tweet reports of problems @866ourvote.

The ACLU of Massachusetts is a member of the Voter Protection Coalition with our partners MassVOTE, the League of Women Voters, Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights and Economic Justice, and Common Cause. On Election Day, we will have volunteer, nonpartisan poll observers stationed at historically identified problem precincts across the Commonwealth.

there're ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS registered to vote in maybe a government ID to vote is a great idea.

LOL - Someone remind the ACLU that there is no such thing as "voter fraud" and that their efforts are not needed, thanks anyway.

Well, the ACLU of course believes that people should obey voting laws. At the same time, though, the dangers posed by the handful of people who don't do that are being exaggerated. Voter suppression, on the other hand, is a much bigger problem: it's out of proportion to the actual problem, infringes thousands of people's rights, and is just sowing confusion. We're worried that rare instances of voter fraud are being used as a pretext for much more widespread voter suppression.  |

I never thought I'd see the day when an ACLU member admits there is voter fraud. (0.00 / 0)
Someone tell ACLU HQ that one of their bots is broken and they're talking to the public.

I would have liked to see the Massachusetts ACLU… (0.00 / 0)
do a questionnaire and voter guide for Congressional candidates.  We just had an election in Massachusetts in which Elizabeth Warren was elected without ever having to take a stand on the NDAA.  The same goes for some of our Congressional candidates -- while others did take firm stands, it was without the knowledge of any voters but those who took the time to ask.
