We can talk about the issues all day long. Yes the Economy is important. Yes the Pro-Life movement is important, and Yes issues such as stem cell research, missle defense, immigration policies and more are important.

But the most important issue to ME, is protecting and defending the United States of America from ALL enemies. That includes foreign (Hussein, Al Qaeda, Bin Laden, Saudi Arabia....) and Domestic (liberal democrat anti-American agenda.)

Without our own National Security guaranteed, we will have NONE of the above.

On election day, be an Election Judge, Poll Watcher or Volunteer. Aside from Military Service to our country, there is no better way to protect and defend our freedoms from being stolen from us.

It is our right. It is our duty.

This may well be the most productive proposal I've heard recently. And so obvious.

Now, how do I get information to volunteer for any of these roles here in SE Connecticut?

Any CT freepers out there with links or information?

Good idea. Also try to get a job with the INS and do your part, small though it may be.

I do serve as a poll worker. I take time off from my job and perform the 12-15 hour minimum wage job. Some other positions that I've worked at are poll book judge, poll captain, ballot judge and poll watcher (nothing paid for the latter). I'm working my way up to Inspector. In November I will again be a ballot judge.

Florida voters, help prevent election fraud. Unless you area a poll worker or certified poll watcher, you may not remain inside the polling place for any reason other than to vote. HOWEVER, keep your eyes and ears open while you are there. ANY VOTER MAY CHALLENGE THE RIGHT OF ANOTHER TO VOTE. Here is the pertinent law:

101.111   Person desiring to vote may be challenged; challenger to execute oath; oath of challenged elector; determination of challenge.--

(1)  When the right to vote of any person who desires to vote is questioned by any elector or watcher, the challenge shall be reduced to writing with an oath as provided in this section, giving reasons for the challenge, which shall be delivered to the clerk or inspector. Any elector or authorized poll watcher challenging an elector at an election shall execute the oath set forth below:

(See link for form with oath)

(2)  Before a challenged elector is permitted to vote by any officer or person in charge of admission to the polling place, the challenged elector's right to vote shall be determined in accordance with the provisions of subsection (3). The clerk or inspector shall immediately deliver to the challenged elector a copy of the oath of the person entering the challenge and shall request the challenged elector to execute the following affidavit:

(See link for form with oath)

Any inspector or clerk of election may administer the oath.

(3)  If the challenged person refuses to make and sign the affidavit, the clerk or inspector shall refuse to allow him or her to vote. If such person makes the affidavit, the inspectors and clerk of election shall compare the information in the affidavit with that entered on the registration books opposite the person's name, and, upon such comparison of the information and the person's signature and the taking of other evidence which may then be offered, the clerk and inspectors shall decide by a majority vote whether the challenged person may vote. If the challenged person is unable to write or sign his or her name, the clerk or inspector shall examine the precinct register to ascertain whether the person registered under the name of such person is represented to have signed his or her name. If the person is so represented, then he or she shall be denied permission to vote without further examination; but, if not, then the clerk or one of the inspectors shall place such person under oath and orally examine him or her upon the subject matter contained in the affidavit, and, if there is any doubt as to the identity of such person, the clerk or inspector shall compare the person's appearance with the description entered upon the precinct register opposite the person's name. The clerk or inspector shall then proceed as in other cases to determine whether the challenged person may vote.
