Counting every vote
The right wing believes in talking about their values -- but apparently democracy isn't one of them.
For the past 30 years, Republicans have done everything in their power to keep people from voting. They know the more people go to the polls, the more likely Democrats are to win.
If we really want to compete in all 50 states, we have to do more than ask for everybody's vote -- we have to make sure that everyone's vote counts. That's why Gov. Dean announced that the organizers hired to work in all 50 states are going to go to every single county in the country to find out how they plan to run the 2008 elections.
Make a donation of $20, $50 or $100 to help Democratic Party organizers protect everyone's vote:
The Democratic Party won in 2006 because we fought back early and aggressively. We put the Republicans on the defensive and demanded accountability for years of failed policies.
We can do even better in 2008 -- and it starts by working hard in 2007.
Every single county has different policies for how they assign voting locations, what types of machines are used, what types of early voting are allowed, what methods people can use to register. The Democratic Party wants to know about the problems your voting location has now, not on Election Day.
Help the Democrats make it happen by donating $20, $50 or $100 to the Democratic Party's 50-state operation:
As Gov. Dean said last week, protecting the right of every eligible American to vote is our party's top priority. It's good for America, and it's good for our democracy.
Thank you for your help with this unprecedented effort.
P.S. The DNC is working on the ground -- but we're also taking to the airwaves. The DNC, along with the Senate and House campaign committees just released a commercial to counter the Republican spin machine and highlight our New Direction for America. Check it out here:
