Voter Access Protection/Election Integrity

Voter Access Protection/Election Integrity (29)

Elections should be about important issues like economic policy, climate change and national security (to name a few). And with a more vibrant local media doing more than just regurgitating poll numbers and reviewing ads, it can be. But that vibrancy requires two things: a genuine commitment and willingness to do the hard work of serious journalism and enough resources to succeed.

Congratulations, Texas Republicans! Mission accomplished! Ya'll kept this guy from being able to cast his vote this year!...

While the pundits and pollsters are predicting a Republican takeover of the Senate, it would be wise to take their prognostications with a grain of salt and not let them become a self-fulfilling prophesy. After all, even those so-called "experts" are not infallible. 

Pop icon Russell Brand raised a ruckus last year when he exhorted, "Don't vote" to millions of his fans; a radical political directive under fire even by the likes of Sex Pistol Johnny Rotten.

The Moral March to the Polls and Moral Freedom Summer to Deepen Grassroots Organizing and Voter Registration Efforts in Communities Statewide. The Forward Together Movement kicked off its Moral March to the Polls yesterday with widespread enthusiasm and a dedicated commitment to voter mobilization as thousands of people flooded the North Carolina General Assembly to hold sit-ins and plan-ins around get out the vote efforts back in their home communities.

Back during the 2012 election cycle, there were so many cases of voter fraud and voter registration fraud by Republicans --- even very very high profile ones --- that The BRAD BLOG found ourselves dubbing it the "Year of GOP Election Fraud".

Mississippi's disgruntled Republican U.S. Senate candidate Chris McDaniel may want to be very careful about what seems to be his current hope of challenging the results of his GOP primary runoff last Tuesday, at least based on the "ineligible" voters he claims cast ballots across the state. If he's too effective in his challenge, he may actually end up seeing himself charged with voter fraud.

New law meant to combat fraud forces Eric Kennie to either change his identity or be unable to overcome burdens

One of the most evocative images of the 20th century was the image of a single man standing in front of a column of tanks as part of the pro-democracy protests in Beijing's Tiananmen Square. The picture resonates because, as Thomas Jefferson wrote two centuries earlier, we are all endowed with certain fundamental unalienable rights - Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
