Online Voter a Registration in Ohio and Elsewhere

http://ohiodems.ngpvanhost.com/switch-it The need to remove barriers to voting has become urgent in the era of  “Citizens United.” The above link is to a petition asking the Ohio Secretary of State to allow online voter registration. This is but s first step and should be the policy in every state in the country.

Others steps are to universally allow voting by mail (as in Oregon) and eliminate the ID requirement for voting unless state pays for it. Having people pay for their own ID functions as a poll tax. No one should have to pay to vote.

Finally, earning a living should not be a barrier to voting. Many people find it difficult to find time to vote on a working day. It is past time for Election Day to be made a holiday on the national, state, county and city holiday as needed. Every citizen should have time to vote.

These steps would begin the process of making this country a true participatory democracy.

 

Voting in Your State – Nonprofit Vote

Voting in Your State – Nonprofit Vote. – this a link to a site where you can click on a state and look up your voting procedures. It is time to register and vote, people! Election Day is exactly five(5) weeks away! Early voting has started in some states. In Florida, six(6) days are now left until the early voting deadline!

Much is at stake! Republican rogue Governors who used low turnout to sneak in during 2010 are up for re-election in six states: Florida (Scott), Maine (Le Page), Michigan (Snyder), Ohio(Kasich), Pennsylvania(Wisconsin), and Wisconsin(Walker). Turnout is needed to beat these fiends, especially in Wisconsin, where an injunction against the deleterious voter I.D. law has been voided, and Ohio, where early voting has been halted by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Additionly, close races are occurring in a number of seats in the Senate, where six pickups would give the control of the U.S. Senate to the “GOP”  and make Darth Dark Money (Mitch McConnell) Majority Leader if he is re-elected. Kentuckians, you must get out and vote Alison Lundergan Grimes to victory over him! Other close races are:

Bruce Braley (D) against nutty Republican Jodi Ernst in Iowa;

Mark Begich (D), who scored 90% on the Progressive Punch up to a year ago, fighting for re-election in Alaska;

Mark Pryor(D) against the extreme Tom Cotton in Arkansas;

Mary Landrieu (D) fighting for re-election in Louisiana;

Kay Hagan (D) fighting for re-election against an extreme Republican in North Carolina;

Mark UdAll (D) fighting for re-election in Colorado;

 

Democrats chances in the House are slim, but we must fight for every seat we can. If we do, we might put a scare into Darth Vainer (Speaker Boehner) and company. In particular, our extreme Congressperson Theodore “Ted” Yoho here in Florida District 3 is being challenged by Maryhelen Wheeler. She is so progressive that not only does this blog endorse her, the Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) have endorsed. Let’s get out there and register and vote, people!
