tedesson posted a New York Times article about the Election Protection Coalition, which is working to stamp out systematic election-day voter harrassment in the US.

I would like to volunteer in some fashion on election day. I know about this organization, and I know that Michael Moore's site, at least a month ago, was suggesting that people from states that are already solidly for Kerry should travel to swing states to help bring out the Kerry vote there.

If you know of any other Election Day volunteer opportunties, would you mind posting them in a comment here?

The direct route to this is via electionprotectionvolunteer.org . I'm doing it. I'll post about it in my journal later today.

Thanks! I'll look into it.

I donated some money, and snarked at them (while acknowledging that it was relatively unimportant) for not offering larger-size donor-gift T-shirts.

And this was their reply.
Hi Stef,

Thank you for contacting us about the Election Protection campaign. We are so pleased that you are interested in helping to protect voters' rights.

Thank you so much for your generous donation. We have just ended the t-shirt premium, but I wanted to let you know that we offered the shirts in Women's small through extra large and men's small through extra large. If CafÈ Press carries larger sizes than XL, we were not aware of it -- we thought that this range of sizes would accommodate almost everyone and did not mean to offend
larger-sized donors.

We look forward to working with you to ensure that all Americans can vote without obstruction and with confidence that their ballots will be counted. Please help us get the word out by forwarding this link http://www.electionprotectionvolunteer.org/friend to any of your friends, family and colleagues who might also be interested in helping to protect voters' rights.

In the meantime, feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.
