    Talking 10 Days to go: Tell your friends about Neighbor to Neighbor!



    I made my phone calls for the day!

    None of us can do this alone -- not Barack Obama, not you, not any of us. It's going to take reaching out more than ever before, trying ways of organizing that have never been tried before.


    Please spread the word about Neighbor to Neighbor and do what you can to get more people involved:

    ----------------------------------------
    I just learned about Neighbor to Neighbor, an exciting new tool that allows us to print off lists of our neighbors, or voters in key battleground states, to contact about this campaign and this movement.

    I know sometimes the political process seems impossible, superficial, and gridlocked. But we're changing that. We're building a campaign of the people, by the people, and for the people.

    So please take a moment to learn more about how you can help with our new Neighbor to Neighbor tool, here's the link to our training page:

    Thanks for getting involved - we can't do this without you.

    Default Give it a shot!

    This has got to be the coolest thing ever! They give you a list of folks in your are and you select if you want to talk to dems, reps and other options. If you can belive this, I was very nervous on that first call, but it was a piece of cake on the second call.

    I had such good chats with folks one lady's son was not there, but I chatted with her and she was more than happy to tell me her feelings of how she is a rep. but will not vote for (and I quote) McCain and that 'stupid' woman. hehe

    I did not say anything because she just kept telling me how disappointed that she was about calling him all those bad names and she said "how do they know" and was very sad that they did it and then she told me that she was voting for Obama because she prayed on it and feels that it the thing to do because we need change.

    I would urge anyone that wants to get involved to do the neighbor calls because it's so much fun and it just feels good to do my part so if Obama does not win then I can know that I tried my best!

    Default Be CAREFUL when voting

    If you are doing early voting then make sure that your vote is accurate so be careful and verify your vote (especially the Presidential one) before you leave.

    There are some machines that may have malfunctions so watch for it.
    We can't let this one get stolen!

    Default Early e-voting results in vote flipping in three states so far

    I noted in passing last week that West Virginia has had the distinct honor of being the first state in the union to report problems (surprise! surprise!) with its electronic voting systems.

    There are now also reports that similar problems have been happening in Tennessee and Texas as well. No doubt these won't be the last.

    So what exactly has happened? Largely, the problem has been what's been dubbed "vote flipping" or "vote switching" -- which is exactly what it sounds like. According to a report by my buddy Scott Finn over at West Virginia Public Broadcasting from late last week:

    Voters in at least two West Virginia counties -- Jackson and Putnam -- say electronic voting machines are switching their votes from Democrats to Republicans.

    The two county clerks, both Republicans, say they don't think there's a problem. But these voting problems have gotten the attention of everyone from CNN to liberal website The Huffington Post.

    So far, eight voters from Jackson and Putnam counties have come forward to say their electronic voting machines kept changing their votes from Democrats to Republicans -- usually, from Obama to McCain.


    Wired News also reports that Ohio and Berkeley counties have been having similar problems.

    It appears that some of the problems have to do with the fact that the software is simply faulty, and requires "recalibration" by voting officials.

    But in Tennessee, there's a different, albeit opposite problem, where votes intended for McCain are actually going to Obama. (One blog has raised questions as to the veracity of this report.) Further, apparently it's not always obvious to tell exactly what part of the screen you're touching.

    According to an account in the Decatur County Chronicle:

    "The way the machine is set up, when you are standing in front of it and seeing it at a certain angle, it looks like you are touching the middle (of the button) when you are actually touching the line above it," Box said.

    [Election Commissioner Rick Box] and fellow Election Commissioner Grafton Dodd tested the machines on Monday. Dodd could not be reached for comment but Box said he found the area of the screen where the buttons for President are located are extremely close together. He blames the problem in part on poor design by software programmers, and adds that there may be sensitivity issues with the screen itself.


    In other words, it's the voter's fault.
