MiriamKilmer BS: Wrong addy for Dems voting in Calif? (10) RE: BS: Wrong address for Dems voting in Calif? 07 Nov 00

I just heard about it from a friend, who wrote:

"Just heard a caller from California who said that a number of African Americans in Pasadena complained that they had received incorrect addresses for their polling places. Since they were stopping by the polling place on the way to work, they were extremely frustrated.... The caller, an Englishwoman, said that this tactic reminded her of the Balkans."

California is now among the "toss-up" states.

Have y'all seen this website?

You can check there to see whether you're in a Bush-safe, Gore-safe, or toss-up state. They encourage you to pledge to vote for Nader if you're NOT in a toss-up state, for Gore if you are. There have been a lot more pledges for Nader than for Gore.

"There is no vote brokering. There is no contract, only you and others pledging to be strategic voters (see disclaimer and privacy policy). It's a WinWin for the progressive end of the spectrum. We can advance both candidacies by thinking collectively about the impact of our individual votes."
