Is an important resource for all voters, they do a better job of keeping polling place info up to date and accessible than the state does.

Non-partisan and always informed and well-balanced. The LWV keeps people informed, registered to vote and active in democracy.

More than 24 million voter-registration records in the United States - about one in eight - are inaccurate, out-of-date or duplicates. Nearly 2.8 million people are registered in two or more states, a...nd perhaps 1.8 million registered voters are dead." –Pew Center Study, Feb 2012 Don't you think it's time you back having a valid ID to vote?

Dungeons of democracy - SOCIAL NETWORK CENSORED and other forms of violence to silence independent journalists victims of abuses...
Os “subterrâneos da democracia”, in portuguese ...

Em um Estado Democrático de Direito, um presidente da república poderia ignorar o capítulo das garantias fundamentais que asseguram direitos iguais para todos os cidadãos? Poderia ele interferir a favor de profissionais de sua confiança, em qualquer segmento da sociedade, de acordo com suas conveniências pessoais e políticas, em detrimento dos direitos dos que recusam proteção dessa natureza, mesmo sofrendo violento assédio moral por parte dos que têm blindagem oficial e certeza absoluta da impunidade ???

No nosso entendimento, trata-se de um exemplo típico de abuso de poder, só possível em regimes totalitários como o que vivemos, no Brasil de 64 a 85.
Numa democracia seria o impensável. Uma promiscuidade entre o público e o privado, corrupção, um achincalhe.
Who would dare to support that ???

"Speeches that are measured by the hour will die with the hour." (Thomas Jefferson)
Do you remember, brothers?? We do.
Whatever the human law may be, and that is not the case, neither an individual nor a nation can commit the least act of injustice against the obscurest individual without having to pay the penalty for it. By hook or crook .
