Voter Protection Lines May Be Jammed. Guess Who’s to Blame?

Earlier this morning we reminded you of the outlet you have for voter outrage should you notice anything fishy as you engage in your civic duty. The phone number is 1-866-OUR-VOTE. The Dems also have a voter protection phone number 1-888-DEM-VOTE, where voters can call to report fraudulent activity as well as get advice on new machines, but you probably won’t be able to get through. Today, conservative radio host Laura Ingraham told her listeners to bombard the lines.

Tell me if you think I’m crazy. This is what I’m thinking. I think we all need to call 1-888-DEM-VOTE all at the same time.

Fair play, huh?

And Ingraham didn’t just let her callers handle the phones. You can listen to Ingraham here.

WE'RE TAKING A SHORT BREAK…

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
