Election Day Hell — And How To Avoid It

YouTube — Election Day Hell, starring Homer Simpson.

Hopefully not coming to an electronic voting machine near you…In case it does, the Brennan Center has some great resources available for your perusal.  

Plus, last month a non-partisan group called Election Protection, headed up by the Lawyer’s Committee for Civil Rights Under Law — launched an election protection effort that has a lot of fantastic information available for the public.  More from TPM.  Their website has a handy state-by-state reference section.

Election Protection also has a hotline — 1-866-OUR-VOTE.

Keep that number handy when you go to vote in case there is a problem.  Hopefully we can get them on for a chat in the days ahead before early voting is in heavy gear.

PS — For any Smithies reading:  Happy Mountain Day!
