True the vote ops inside the system in Ohio
Think Progress

Quote:[....]
But one True the Vote affiliate, the Ohio Voter Integrity Project, is taking their election interference one step further. Ohio VIP has recruited and dispatched poll workers who will not be merely observing, but directly involved in the voting process in a crucial swing state. Hamilton County elections director Tim Burke told the Columbus Dispatch that VIP poll workers will represent the Republican Party:

We know that the Voter Integrity Project has recruited and through the (Hamilton) County Republican Party has placed some poll workers. I have discussed this with my Republican counterpart.

I accept the fact that he understands that the VIP pollworkers are working for the Board of Elections on Election Day and are subject to the board’s instructions, not the VIP instruction. Obviously both sides are going to have observers as well as poll workers. I, and others will spend the day responding to trouble calls


Ohio VIP provides a 3 hour training for their poll workers, as required by the Board of Elections. The group is advertising these sessions, according to the Dispatch, “as going beyond what the secretary of state tells them.” Ohio VIP is one of the more zealous branches of the already extreme True the Vote national organization; Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) opened a criminal investigation into True the Vote due to the Ohio group’s attempts to purge thousands of students, trailer park residents, homeless people and African Americans from the voting rolls.

RE: True the vote ops inside the system in Ohio
One more time I'm saying we need a federal voting law that can't be touched by the Congress or any damned state. A law that plainly states every citizen has the right to vote, that no one can tell them otherwise. Anyone caught purging voters lists, throwing away registrations, changing voting hours, bullying at the polling places, giving out false info on election dates, letting voting machines be changed with experimental data, and on and on, would be prosecuted and put in jail for voter suppression.

We've seen all of that this year, and more. It has got to stop!
