Voter Intimidation Today

Wisconsin Militia to Confront Democrats Who Voted to Recall Walker at the Polls

Poor sentence structure aside, this is how bad it is getting here: An armed group of “patriots,” who obviously have no fucking clue of the principles this nation was founded on, have openly stated their intent to target the polling places in certain minority-heavy neighborhoods to intimidate voters.

(The conservatives always were  nostalgic for the “good old days of the 1950’s” and well, here it is: Racism at the polls.)

So here’s the important bit and I think when everyone goes to vote, they should have these numbers handy:

FBI Civil Rights Division: 1-800-253-3931 (TTY line 1-877-267-8971)

Department of Justice Civil Rights Division Voting Section: 1-202-514-2007 (TDD 202-514-1888)

Also, your local police department.

Get a picture of the person following you are trying to intimidate you, and try to get their names. Report it immediately. Get the police out there if you must.  As an American citizen, it is your right to vote. As a human being, it is your right to have a voice in your own government. Don’t let anyone take that away from you.
