CNN Voter Hotline

10/29/2008:

For those that spot shady activities at or near the polling locations this Tuesday – CNN has set up a hotline for you to call.

CNN Voter Hotline

The end of the presidential campaign may be days away, but with the rising popularity of early and absentee voting, millions of voters are weighing in long before Election Day.

If you have any problems or concerns about voting, CNN would like to hear about them. Call CNN’s voter hotline at 1-877-GOCNN-08 (1-800-462-6608) to report your problem.

The hotline has received roughly 10,000 calls since it went live the middle of last week and viewers have reported a variety of problems and issues.

Watch CNN’s Political Editor Mark Preston to learn more about the voter hotline:

[quote comment=”115973″][quote comment=”115297″]I got my sample ballot in the mail today! If anyone can figure out the mucky muck of Public Question #1, you don’t belong in public. Hang the lawyer who wrote it, along with his or her college English professor.

Maybe it was written like that so people will vote YES because they don’t want to read the whole thing, and don’t want to come across as not understanding the mucky muck.

Both ballot questions and their explanations are incomprehensible, and I have not read or heard anyone pro or con mention them in the media (including Internet). In case it is monkey business that someone is trying to slip through in a presidential election year, I will vote no on both unless someone without a reputation for corruption or idiocy comes forward to promote them.[/quote]

I posted something a while back, might be stuck in moderation. Ballot question #1 requres voter approval for the state to issue any new debt. My guess is that it is written in a confusing manner so you say “wtf” and vote against it. NJ politicians don’t want you to have the power to “veto” their outrageous spending. Look up Senator Leonard Lance on Youtube to get a 2 minute vidoe clip where the guy gives you the quick download on the measure. Hope this helps.

Here is a video clip from the sponsor discussing the 1st ballot question.

Basically, this ballot question requires voter approval for the state to issue new debt. I can only guess that the writer of the description wanted to confuse you so you vote against the measure. Anyone that is blasting any candidate in the Presidential election b/c of the national debt/deficit that votes against this measure needs to get their head examined. The sponsor of this bill is giving you exactly what you want, the ability to prevent the government from issuing debt w/o your prior consent.

It is a small town what did the voter expect a drive thru?

Watching the news of early voting in Indiana. A voter was reporting voter suppression citing that in his small town there are only 2 voting machines, and that the line is too long, saying that the republicans are making people wait in long lines to suppress the vote by making them not want to wait, give up, and leave without voting.
