Volunteers for America!

ElectionProtection is a clearinghouse for folks who want to be part of the US electoral process. They've already shown their stuff in primary elections. They're set to go in Florida. The group is a coalition effort of People for the American Way and a bunch of other organizations--some of the usual leftish/centrist suspects (Working Assets, the ACLU, the NAACP), and some rather strange bedfellows (the United Church of Christ, the African American Ministers' Leadership Council). One hopes that people of all political stripes will be welcomed in this effort to get the vote out and educate people about their rights. One (well, this one, anyway) hopes as well that those of us who post about our impatience with the US electoral process on MeFi will put our time and/or money where our pixels are.

Good link, Sidhedevil, this is exactly the sort of electoral oversight I was arguing about last week with some bloggers on the other side of the political divide.

Not UN oversight, oversight by the entire nation! I'm going to vollunteer and do my part.

Thanks for posting this!
