Veterans,Navy SEALs,Special forces to monitor polls to prevent voter intimidation.
To make sure that no voter is subjected to intimidation when they hit the polls next month, one organization is dispensing military veterans to booths across the country.

Back in 2008, voters in Philadelphia claimed to have been accosted by members of the Black Panthers wearing military gear, who were trying to discourage them from exercising their right to choose their president. Four years later, Get Out the Vet -- an organization made up of military veterans who register vets and help military members overseas send out their ballots –- will be patrolling the polls to ensure that no voters are made uncomfortable as they cast their ballots, Fox news reports.

“Every veteran at one point in their life has taken an oath to preserve, protect and defend the constitution,” Ben Brink, founder of Get Out the Vet, told Fox News. “So, who better than veterans to watch the polls and be a fair observer of elections?”

But members of the Black Panthers, a black nationalist fringe group, aren’t going to be the veteran volunteers’ only concern.

"Bullies at the Ballot Box," a new report from Common Cause and Demos, concluded that right-wing groups, including a Tea Party spin-off group called True the Vote, are training "poll watchers" to target minorities on Election Day [link to www.huffingtonpost.com]

Voter intimidation is nothing new. Back in the early 1900 and 1800's they used to round people up and force them to vote.

And then that Spanish vote counting company George Soros owns will decide who you really voted for.

FYI True the Vote is hardly a right wing organization. It is bipartisan and the only goal is clean voter rolls and fair elections. How can anyone fault that?

Agreed. The polling locations must be secure and free of intimidation for all voters of either party. I think some of the medai outlets have hotlines to report voter intimidation and I hope people will use them if they observe it anywhere.

FYI - True the Vote is hardly a "right wing" organization. It is totally non partisan. Their main goal is to have clean voter roles and fair elections. Why would anyone oppose that?
