This time a paid registration gatherer tells potential voters not to mark Democrat on their registration. That they will not be paid to process the Democratic registrations. Thus reducing the number of Democrats likely to register by reducing their opportunity to register with that gatherer. Also how many instances have we found of Democratic registrations getting "lost"? Far too many

 Now who would benefit by Democrats thinking they are registered to vote when they really are not?

Steal Back Your Vote

STEAL BACK YOUR VOTE

It all seemed normal at first.

"It's your last hour to register to vote," the man said.

"Are you registering both parties?" our viewer asked.

The man said yes, but then the conversation took the same strange turn our viewer thought he'd heard in passing.

"Could you do me a favor?" the man asked. "Mark non-partisan on there. I'll get credit for it. I don't get credit for Democrats.

I am a Democrat," he continued. "So I still do Democrats if I have to, but I'm working for the Republican Party. I have to get two an hour and I don't get credit for Democrats."

There are legal boundaries which can be crossed when you pay someone to register voters.

According to Secretary of State Ross Miller it's a felony to compensate someone for registering if you compensate them based on the total number of voters they are registering.

DISCOUNTED VOTES MAKE A DIFFERENCE

I was amazed at the number of these I found on flickr under vote stealing:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
