There's a phone number to call for legal assistance, if anyone sees or has any problems voting: 1-866-OUR-VOTE (1-866-687-8683).

It is mainly aimed at keeping an eye on touchscreen voting.  I will take the training myself although I plan to work at Waverly Library handing out ballots, and I trust the judges there to handle the election honestly.  Nonetheless, I want to be prepared in case there are problems that the judges cannot handle.  At least, I will know whom to call to report problems.

By the way, Le Monde had an article yesterday on the risks of touchscreen voting in the U.S.

Voters in minority communities were disproportionately disenfranchised through illegal disqualification, intimidation, and faulty voting machines. The Election Protection partnership needs you to stand up and defend voting rights on November 2.
