Occupy Election Day
By Dave Winer on Sunday, October 16, 2011 at 3:20 PM.

Election Day is November 8. #

22 days from now. #

Perhaps now is a good time to practice getting people to the polls over all the obstacles governors and state legislatures have put in their way.  #

Mike Huckabee said yesterday: "Just make sure that they don't go vote. Let the air out of their tires on election day. Tell them the election has been moved to a different date. That's up to you how you creatively get the job done." #

I guess he thought that was funny. I don't. I think the vote is sacred. I don't care who you vote for, but the thought that one American would even think to deprive another American of their vote, is well un-American, in the extreme.  #

Helping people get to vote is a very powerful way to flex political muscles in a totally legal way. And prove that there is no specific agenda for the #OWS movement. Help all kinds of voters get to the polls. If a member of the ruling class needs help, we'll help. Anyone means anyone. #

There's a pulse to this thing. I get that now. We have a really big election coming up in 2012, but the one this November is important too. #
