Black panthers intimidating voters in ohio

Organizers of True the Vote claim their goal is to train one million poll watchers to challenge and confront other Americans as they go to the polls in November.

This report first provides background on the current threat of overly aggressive voter challenge tactics and the history of such efforts in previous elections.Eligible Americans have a civic duty to vote, and government at the federal, state, and local level has a responsibility to protect voters from illegal interference and intimidation.As we approach the 2012 elections, every indication is that we will see an unprecedented use of voter challenges.Caging – the practice of compiling a list of voters based on returned mail for the purpose of challenging their eligibility to vote.A caging list is compiled by conducting a mass-mailing and collecting the names of voters where the mail was returned.Each section includes recommendations for best practices in each of the areas we examine.In examining the ten states’ laws governing challenges to voters’ right to vote before Election Day, including the use of voter lists created through caging or other unreliable practices, we find Colorado, Nevada, and Ohio are satisfactory, North Carolina and Texas are mixed, and Florida, Missouri, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Virginia - five out of the ten states - unsatisfactory.This should concern anyone who wants a fair election with a legitimate result that reflects the choices of all eligible Americans.Clear rules that protect voters from improper removal from the rolls by voter caging and challenging, as well as from intimidating behavior at the polls, can help prevent interference with voter rights.States vary in terms of who may challenge a voter’s eligibility and the process for determining a voter’s eligibility once it is challenged.The potential for abusing voter challenges is high, particularly where organized groups seek electoral gain.
