  •  So, I'm assuming (none)
    our legions of lawyers are working on this? That MoveOn and the DNC are paying for radio and TV ads in these areas providing correct information? Sending out flyers? Amassing all the volunteers that no longer have anything to do in Oregon because most ballots have already been mailed in to make phone calls to people who might be getting false information?

    •  Yes in Ohio (none)
      I've received several phone calls and mailings with the correct voting information.  In fact, MoveOn PAC called and asked us to check in with its volunteers at the polling place once we've voted so they would know to stop calling us Tuesday.
      •  Same in Minnesota (none)
        I got a call two days ago making sure that I was registered to vote and new when/how to do it. I don't remember what org it was from, though.

      •  Good to hear (none)
        Disenfranchisement really pisses me off. I heard an essayist on NPR last week talking about how the Republicans are the party of the little guy (that he could say this with no irony in his voice just blew me away). My response, in a letter to Morning Edition, was why if the Republicans are so concerned with looking out for the litty guy, they weren't willing to have that person's vote count.

      •  Berkeley County (none)
        DCDemocrat, Berkeley County's Precinct Captain 16, was all over the effort by the local Republicans. What Kos leaves out about the Berkeley County effort is John Small, who gave the slap on the wrist to the Republicans, is a Republican.
        You can read here how the Republicans' effort may have backfired on them.
      •  We've been getting visits (none)
        for the past two weeks. We get to vote early in Colorado, and I've had several personal visits and multiple phone calls letting us know where and when we can vote. Lots of involvement in the GOTV drive here.

        All four members of my household voted last week, BTW.
