El VOTO LATINO es importante, Sal y vota y defiende tus derechos.
ELECTION SPECIAL, 2ND EDIT.! SAVE DEMOCRACY—ACTIONS YOU CAN TAKE NOW, ON ELECTION DAY, AND BEYOND Dear Activist: Please distribute this email to your members, friends, and family immediately. Watch this video, “10 Things You Need to Know to Stop A Coup”. It discusses what you might expect from the election, and remedies: https://www.fieldteam6.org/protecttheresultsvideo Here are more remedies: https://youtu.be/-2FKZbbt3Mo It is essential that you take actions to protect the vote. Here are some options—courtesy of the Grassroots Election Protection Coalition: 1. Be a poll observer—inside or outside the polling place. Frontline Election Defenders will provide PPE and water, teach you de-escalation tactics, and you’ll learn to contact a network and lawyers if there are problems: https://mobilize.us/s/EnHVRh Here’s a video about it: https://youtu.be/ECoSN2LS9gU Contact [email protected]. 2. Take video of poll tapes and incidents. Use the app, Actual Vote, to video poll tapes. You must be part of an organization to do this. If you live in AZ, CO, FL, GA, ME, MI, MT, NC, OH, PA, SC, TN, TX, or WI, go here to video poll tapes: https://validatethevoteusa.org/ 3. Find out who’s been wrongly stripped of the ability to vote and get him or her re-registered—volunteer with the Voter Purge Project: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSewdTgj54cWBadEuCe71bjLGQIYGZrIbARGo1gW5zVf9BDbkQ/viewform 4. Learn how to become a ballot acceptance worker/observer. Arrange to have lawyers present. 5. Help to cure (correct) ballots. Go here: https://www.friendsvotetogether.org/protect 6. Protect the acceptance of rightfully submitted ballots. 7. Help feed ballots into digital scanners. 8. Make sure digital ballot images are preserved. According to Audit USA, “Digital images are part of the chain of custody of the election materials that must be preserved for 22 months under 52 U.S.C. sec. 20701, and in some cases longer, per state law.” Volunteer with Audit USA: https://www.auditelectionsusa.org/ballot-images-project/get-involved/ 9. Monitor the chain of custody of ballots. Poll observers can live stream ballot processing via Facebook Live or YouTube. Here were the chain of custody problems in one locale: https://drive.google.com/file/d/16UlBKqxq_YOXhJNMcwdE_rhCExybFueb/view?usp=drivesdk 10. Do data analysis of the vote to make sure the announced results are correct. Election night votes can be checked in two ways— a. imaging the poll tapes using the app, Actual Vote, to see if votes changed during the final tabulation/reporting process. b. Public records requests of digital ballot images - or actual viewing of the paper ballots from Election Day - to see if the scanners themselves are accurate. Then repeat that process for each of the other types of voting: Early Voting & Mail-in Voting. Then check if the three categories add up correctly. SMARTelections.us can provide you with training. Learn more here: https://smartelections.us/countthevote Email [email protected] if you are interested. 11. Work to guarantee recounts meet legal deadlines. Here are the laws for your state: https://ballotpedia.org/Election_recount_laws_and_procedures_in_the_50_states,_2020 12. Ask your Secretary of State to do a ballot image or risk-limiting audit in every jurisdiction. Here is information on the battleground states, and the questions you should ask them: Florida Secretary of State: Laurel Lee 850-245-6500 [email protected] Dir. of Elections: Maria Matthews 850-245-6200 maria.mat[email protected] Have you had anymore hackings? Were votes affected? We would like a full accounting of your election security funds for all counties. We would like to see all non-disclosure agreements you required of all election officials. Which offices have joined the Albert system? Michigan Secretary of State: Jocelyn Benson 517-335-2436 [email protected] Bureau of Elections: Jonathan Brater 517-335-3271 [email protected] North Carolina Board of Elections Exec. Dir.: Karen Brinson Bell 919-814-0747 [email protected] Chairman of the Board: Damon Circosta [email protected] Did you get rid of VR Systems’ laptops? In 2016, they listed some voters checking in as having already voted (they had not). You should use hand-marked paper ballots. Pennsylvania Secretary of State: Kathy Boockvar 717-787-6458 [email protected] Dep. Secretary for Elections: Jonathan Marks 717-787-5280 [email protected] Hand-marked paper ballots should be used exclusively. Did you have anymore thefts of equipment or ballots? Hire more volunteers to help you! You must count and verify mail-in ballots! How many drop boxes did you have per county? We would like to observe the processing of ballots on Facebook Live and YouTube. Wisconsin Administrator: Meagan Wolfe 608-266-8005 or 608-266-8175 [email protected] Chair of Election Commission: Ann Jacobs 414-306-8999 [email protected] You should have hand-marked paper ballots exclusively. Why aren’t you mandating masks, good ventilation, and social distancing at polling places? It sounds like Ann Jacobs wants more personal injury cases! You must turn off the modems in election machines before you tabulate the votes. What percentage of your machines meet federal guidelines? Discuss security safeguards of each county. It is now too late to vote by mail. If you have a ballot you have not yet mailed, bring it to a ballot drop box or polling place. If you have already voted by mail but have any doubt that your ballot will arrive by Election Day (call your election office to see if your ballot has been accepted), you should go to the polls in person. You should tell the poll worker to spoil your mail-in ballot, and you can vote in person. Here is advice about voting safely in person: https://lifehacker.com/how-to-safely-vote-in-person-this-year-1844701684 North Carolina, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania voters: Verify your paper printout before you leave! If you have any problems with voting, call 866-OUR-VOTE. Thank you for all you do! Good luck to us all! Sincerely, Nancy S. Lyons

Jackson, Sr. and the PUSH staff to distribute hundreds of food baskets Tuesday, October 6, 2020 Chicago, IL – In order to help hundreds of people on the South Side of Chicago during this pandemic, Rev. Jesse L.

Jackson. “We will continue to provide food for the least of these. That is our mission, our passion.” Rainbow PUSH Coalition is a multi-racial, multi-issue, progressive, international organization that was formed in December 1996 by the Reverend Jesse L. Jackson, Sr. through merging of two organizations he founded Operation PUSH People United to Serve Humanity (estab. 1971) and the Rainbow Coalition (estab. 1984). With headquarters in Chicago and offices in Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, New York and Oakland, the organization works to make the American Dream a reality for all citizens while advocating for peace and justice around the world. RPC is dedicated to improving the lives of all people by serving as a voice for the voiceless. Its mission is to protect, defend and gain civil rights by leveling the economic and educational playing fields while promoting peace and justice around the world. Get Informed & Be Social with PUSH!
