I want to bring your attention to a very valuable website: VoteFraudSquad.com. Vote Fraud Squad is the blog for the Voter Integrity Project - a project of the Sam Adams Alliance. The Voter Integrity Project features an army of bloggers from across the nation tasked with the mission to root out stories of vote fraud or vote suppression. [Note: In the interest of full disclosure, I am a member of this squad (along with some other names you will recognize). I'll be camping out in the always quirky St. Louis area making sure that evidence of fraud and suppression gets out.] As the VIP site puts it:
The Voter Integrity Project is a non-partisan project sponsored by the Sam Adams Alliance as part of its Sunshine on Elections effort. The purpose of the VIP project is for voters to come together to build information about vote fraud and vote suppression, in order to ensure a more fair, open, and democratic election process.
I suggest you keep your eyes on the blog so you are aware of just how much is going on. [Seriously, I could fill the Red Hot four or five times over with all of the stuff that we have been publishing over there. Go check it out now.]
Along with this, the group has launched a contest:
Election Day is fast approaching. With 130 million voters, we can expect potential chaos–including election fraud. Political forces across the ideological spectrum have been accused of committing significant vote fraud and voter suppression. These illegal activities effectively negate your vote, along with the voices of countless of other Americans.
For this reason the Sam Adams Alliance has launched a video contest to document this year’s election fraud. Working together, we will raise awareness in future elections.

This contest is a part of our Sunshine on Elections Voter Integrity Project - a non-partisan, non-profit grassroots group — is out there arming and showcasing people just like you who take the initiative to take control of the election process and are working to make sure that this election is fair for everyone involved. This project is about empowering citizen journalists, bloggers, grassroots activists and average, every day voters to expose, investigate and record incidents of election fraud and voter suppression in their neighborhoods, precincts, counties and states in order to ensure a more fair, open, and democratic election process.
