Daily Voting News For August 22, 2008

Daily Voting News For August 22, 2008

Guest Blogged by John Gideon of

So far this year your kind donations to VotersUnite.Org have allowed us to keep providing ‘Daily Voting News’ at least 6 days a week except for a couple weeks of vacation or conferences. We have also been able to spend over four weeks of long hours to research, write and edit a report that has been discussed by media around the nation and was featured on Lou Dobbs earlier this week. In the upcoming months, as election day grows nearer, our work load will grow and then as voters begin going to the polls and problems are announced we will be passing on the information to all of you via DVN and our website. We know money is tight right now but your help is needed to allow us to keep doing our work. Please help us out with a tax-deductible donation. ...
