UtneCast: Protecting Votes in 2008

Voting Booth

Election day is almost here and questions still remain about the security of the voting process. A lot of attention has been paid to accusations of voter fraud and the McCain campaign’s attacks on the community organizing group ACORN. What has been largely ignored is the rampant misinformation that’s already being spread in low-income and minority communities, and the unjust voter disenfranchisement that’s likely to occur.

For this episode of the UtneCast, I spoke with Rachel Bloom and Nancy Abudu, organizers from the American Civil Liberties Union who are working to make sure that every legal vote is counted. We talked about race, fraud, and the organization’s efforts to protect people’s votes in 2008.
