Woman in NJ Has Vision - It will be President Kerry

In a Tarot-card inspired vision link, a NJ woman has seen a Kerry presidency.

"I saw the 'Hangman' card for President Bush," said the woman. "I said, 'Oh my God.' In other words, his career was going to be over as the president."

No More Poll Thuggery!

Twits practicing poll thuggery

Remember these twits?

If there's one lesson we've learned from the 2000 election hijacking-hijinx, it's never to let poll thuggery occur without it being put under a public and legal microscope.

Republicans are trying desperately to suppress the American vote.

Why do you suppose they're doing it?

It's simple.

They know [and fear] the candidate for whom the crowds are waiting to elect as they stand in three or four-hour lines.

What to do at polls

What to do at polls

Whether you are a first-time or longtime voter, casting a ballot can be a confusing process. Here are some tips to make sure your vote is counted today:

1. Don't panic if you registered to vote and you can't find your name on a list. Get help from a poll worker.

2. Bring photo identification with you to the polling place, along with a current utility bill or something else to show who you are and where you live. Voters who registered by mail and are voting for the first time are required to provide this information. If you have no identification, you may sign a statement declaring who you are and where you live.

3. Read the signs on how to use the voting machines, a list of your voting rights and how to file a complaint if your voting rights have been violated.

4. Vote between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. to avoid long lines. Know when polls close in your area. If you are standing in line at the time when the poll is scheduled to close, you will be allowed to vote.

5. If your name is not on the polling place's list of registered voters, you are entitled to a provisional ballot that will allow you to vote. It will be counted later, after election officials confirm your status as a registered voter.

6. When finished voting, check your ballot to make sure you voted the way you wanted to.

7. If you feel your rights have been violated, you can file a complaint with your state election officials. Every polling place must be able to provide contact information about where you can file the complaint.

8. If you experience problems, call 1-866-OUR-VOTE. That's the hot line being operated by the Election Protection Coalition, which is composed of many organizations including the League of Women Voters. You can also call 1-866-747-1471. That's the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.
