First WATCH THE TRAILER to the movie UNCOUNTED
There are many assaults on the integrity of our votes depicted below.
Perhaps we need some help. Maybe we could all email the UNITED NATIONS and beg for UN help to insure the integrity of our elections, like other countries do. I'm sure our tax dollars are used, so why can't we Americans have the same oversight?
HERE'S THE EMAIL ADDRESS FOR UN ELECTIONS: firstname.lastname@example.org

Oh, the irony. America's election integrity is a shambles, proven by the following facts.
Anyone interested in the integrity of the voting process will find enough information on the Brad Blog to demonstrate to their neighbors and friends that voting machines can destroy the voting process. With enough educated voters, perhaps they can join forces and insist that the local voting process is secured.

Let me introduce you to True the Vote.BUT, I THINK WE NEED THE UN IN THESE STATES if voter suppression isn't properly thwarted and voting rights are limited in any way:
True the Vote are the front of the RW militants who are going to planning and being trained to discount votes in election process itself, according to their arbitrary rules and beliefs. This group has been present in a lot of the hotly contested election contests recently and although they have been cited for 'intimidation', they continue to operate with their 'might makes right' Modus Operandi.
This diary by gsmoke has tons of great resources:
Ever since the selection of 2000, the rudiments of US democracy have been under attack. We still haven't dealt with the multitudinous problems of electronic voting machines and now we have a concerted attack on registration and voting by the Republican Party and their affiliated organizations. Those who have built the engines for stealing elections, from registration to vote counts, will use them, this year and every Election Day from this time forward, if they can.ALSO READ:
Here are some resources to stop them in their tracks and rebuild our ability to vote for every single citizen. It is not an exhaustive list but it is a start.
Protect your own vote and those of all your fellow citizens.
