    I saw reports of this happening in Minnesota too.  I sent the thread to my daughter, who goes to the U of M, but lives off campus.  Over the weekend, we looked up her polling place online so she knew where to go.  

    Today she got a call from someone who said they were from Americans Coming Together and that the polling place was at the Coffman student union.  It would be nice if that were the case, but that's not what the official list says for her address.

      And to add, it really pissed my daughter off that a campaign would do something like this.  
    •  Has she spoken with other friends about this? (none)
      Always worthwhile to get the word out.

        Yes, and she suspected it was a scam right away.  Unfortunately, being the starving students that they are, they don't have caller ID.

          if the call is from out-of-state.  People who receive these calls need to call their local phone company, explain what happened, and ask for a list of the last calls to their line.  Then forward the information to KE04 legal, I would think.

          Keep in mind that *69 service is not free--it costs something like 50 cent (probably varies).  But if you tell your phone company that someone is violating state or federal law, they are usually responsive.  KE04 and other groups need to be finding victims and filing paperwork to get call records and connect the dots.

          •  I would guess. . . (none)
            given the enormity of the violations this evening, that this has been found out through the phone company by KE'04.  However, to be on the safe side, you might want your daughter to call the phone company to get the information as h0db suggests.
    •  bejeezus (none) disguise. We're not sheep this time though. Glad you were on top of this!

      Americans Coming Together does not instruct you to tell anyone where there voting location is. They tell you to give out the 866-OUR-VOTE number for them to call for that info themselves.
