Fighting Voter Suppression Over the Net and On the Ground

We are at a critical point in this election and there is time to support the local media in battle ground states who are looking for content with a local flair

For this election I have been working with a group of friends who are trying to get the message out about the network of legal advisers who will be at the polls, solving voter issues on election day.  The concern is that the national hotline 866-OUR-VOTE is not yet rolling off the tongues of every American who will be lined up at the polls on election day. Our focus is the battleground states and we have a burning desire to get that number known so that voters are clear that they have real-time, on-the-ground support if they run into trouble voting or if they witness voting irregularities at the polls.

We developed citizen generated videos, in broadcast quality, ready for the local broadcast television and radio affiliates to use our content on their networks.  We’ve been told all day that It’s the kind of content that their markets are responding to and it separates them from the larger networks.  We just launched the media outreach today and need a couple of  people to  help call producers and editors in local print pubs in the 4 remaining states during business hours.

We are in the last stage of our push to get the videos into the hands of the local TV stations. So far the pick up in the States we worked on this am has been good.  The feedback that we get from the producers is that that they need content with local flavor, not the high gloss celebrity productions used in national outreach campaign.

So, in the end, this is not a hard sell!  It’s a very easy way to have a meaningful effect on fighting voter suppression and voter fraud using the net.
