Allison Kilkenny: Unreported

National Voting Updates

Posted in Barack Obama, politics, voter disenfranchisement by allisonkilkenny on November 1, 2008

From MCM

days until Election Day.

Amongst all of the stories of failures, lawsuits, voter purges and voter suppression there is an occasional story that begs to be read and passed on to others so they will read it. This morning’s featured  article is one of those. Imagine wanting to exercise your right to vote so strongly that you are willing to travel from Bangalore, India to New York City just to step into the voting booth and pull the lever. It’s a story worth the read.
