As a result of the last two elections having not just the appearance of impropriety, but inequitable voting practices, including reducing available voting machines in minority precincts where voter registrations had increased upwards of 20%, the following campaign is underway.
The idea is that the citizens will provide oversight of the election by videotaping the election to provide real evidence of any issues in the election. GREAT IDEA to whoever came up with this, but I suspect that it was not just one person, but the idea of many who decided that they had an opportunity to document the vote.
So here is a youtube video about Video the Vote 2006.
And a google search reveals this site for further information for those who have video cameras to download the protocols for videotaping the elections.
Why is this so important?
Well NOW has something on their site about UN Election Oversight.
And the Washington Post about UN Election Monitors on US soil.
But finally, my understanding is that it is illegal for anyone not registered to vote to be physically in a polling place, which means that the UN being there could in fact negate the votes cast at that location.
So it is in our hands.
Video the Vote 2006 if you have a video camera.

I simply want the vote to be fair, so that everyone has the right to believe what they will......Not to do so is to support our country's descent into chaos.
