America Votes(.org) Legitimacy in Question
by Joe Sacco Thursday September 23, 2004 at 10:11 PM

On Thursday, September 23, 2004, at least one group of individuals is making voter registration difficult for some, depending on party affiliation.

America Votes claims to be a non-partisan political organization working to register voters. According to their official website, they are part of a coalition with AFL-CIO, America Coming Together (ACT), and other political organizations.

Surprisingly, a number of AMERICA VOTES field representatives were at UNLV's campus today asking "If the election were held today, would you vote Republican or Democrat?" An answer of "Democrat" assured a response of non-compliance. They actually refused to register people whom responded "Democrat". On the contrary, if a person were to say they would support the Republican party/candidate, the representatives would then kindly register the person.

On-foot voter-registration workers are questioning political party affiliation, ultimately discriminating against Democrats and 3RD PARTY supporters. These people are clearly inhibiting democracy while enabling more partisan-based corruption within the US voting process.
