#PoorPeoplesCampaign #ProtectOurVote

(📷 @StevePavey #HopeInFocus) Mass Moral Motorcade on Senator Joe Manchin gets ready to ki
Sen. Manchin & the U.S. Chamber of Commerce & other wealthy donors are trying to bury the For The People Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, & $15/hr living wage. Bury them under the non-constitutional filibuster. That's why our motorcade is being led by a hearse.
There's got to be some people who are going to fight for life. We are the resistance to death! #PoorPeoplesCampaign #ProtectOurVote

This is the #DemPartyPlatform for 2020. This part is called: HEALING THE SOUL OF AMERICA
Only one party has a specific plan for healing and uniting Americans after the last four tumultuous, chaotic, frightening years-the other party caused them 1/11
#Democrats believe in bringing the American people together, not stoking division and distrust. 2/11 #DemPartyPlatform #Healing #AmericaUnited
President Trump has denigrated virtually every segment of American society—and in so doing, he has insulted the very idea of America itself. 3/11 #DemPartyPlatform #Healing #AmericaUnited

If Americans have to choose between their health and right to vote, the outcome may be disastrous. All voters — Black, white, brown, and API — need a safe and fair election. We need the election funding in the Heroes Act. Call your Senators now — 1-888-415-4527. #ProtectOurVote. Image
"The letter demands that the Senate reconvene and approve the HEROES Act, a House-passed bill that calls for nearly $4 billion in funding to help states expand mail-in voting and prepare safe in-person polling places in time for the November general election."

.@HouseDemocrats just passed six appropriations bills that included many MFOL priorities! If approved by the Senate and signed by POTUS we'd be a few steps closer to ending gun violence! Let's break down the positives and a few places we wish the bills went further.

Thanks to congressional champions like @RepRobinKelly and @rosadelauro, and the grassroots advocacy of MFOL youth and survivors, the House approved 25 MILLION for the CDC & NIH each to research gun violence.

Our right to vote is at risk. We've been pushing for election protections at all levels of government because #VotingAccessSavesLives which is why it's great to see @HouseDemocrats increase funding to #ProtectOurVote ($6 million more than the White House is pushing for!).

7 yrs. ago today SCOTUS issued the disastrous Shelby decision, gutting the Voting Rights Act & unleashing a torrent of voter suppression. Just days ago we saw Shelby in action: sudden poll closures & long lines ALL OCCURRING in minority-heavy precincts. Coincidence? No.
We need to act fast & #ProtectOurVote by taking up & passing my bipartisan Voting Rights Advancement Act which the House ALREADY passed (#HR4) & is supported by 46 senators. My #VRAA would restore the Voting Rights Act, and in doing so, #RestoreTheVote. Image
Why is @senatemajldr afraid to release the #VRAA from his legislative graveyard? Empowering all Americans to vote isn't a Democratic or Republican priority; it's the American way. I urge all senators to join me in calling on Leader McConnell to allow a vote to #RestoreTheVote

COVID_19 isn’t the only viral threat to our country!

An online voting platform developed by Democracy Live poses serious risks to election security and outcomes in #DE #NJ and #WV.

We must continue hammering our Congressional Reps with a simple demand: #ProtectOurVote
Uncovering multiple flaws and voting vulnerabilities, researchers at MIT and UofM concluded OMNIBALLOT from Democracy Live can easily be hacked, personal data mined, and votes altered w/out detection! Porous architecture of software invites external and internal threats.
Potential portals for attacks:

🦠 Voter’s device- infecting device w/bot or malware
🛠 Server-side- stealing private info and election
🧬 3rd-Party Code- Highjack javascript and inject
altered script

.@Sifill_LDF delivers a powerful tribute to @repjohnlewis:

“We strengthened this country, we made this country’s reputation—and people like Rep. John Lewis sacrificed themselves to a lifetime of service to this country.”

#LDFatSelma ImageImage
.@Sifill_LDF leads community members and Selma sojourners in 20 seconds of applause to lift up @repjohnlewis’s health and commemorate his lifetime of sacrifice.

We can all partake in honoring @repjohnlewis legacy by urging the Senate to #ProtectOurVote.

“This is a civil rights issue. They know we are going to be disproportionately targeted & they still won’t protect us. You have to call [your senators] every week.”

The #2020elections are quickly approaching, yet four bills designed to safeguard our elections from foreign interference sit in the Senate. #ProtectOurVote
First up: the #SHIELDAct. This comprehensive bill would protect the legitimacy of our electoral process by requiring transparency and stopping disinformation campaigns.
Next up is the bipartisan Protect Our Elections Act. Sponsored by @SenRubioPress, @VanHollenforMD, @SenatorCollins, and @BenCardinforMD, this bill would prohibit foreign ownership and operation of companies providing election services.

🚨ALERT: @TarrantCountyTX’s voters, did you receive a letter from the county saying your voter registration was incomplete? Unfortunately, the county sent out incorrect information in a mailer. If you received the notice below, you can complete your information in person & vote!
The letter from @TarrantCountyTX incorrectly states that if you update your information within 10 days, your registration will be effective 30 days later. This is wrong. If you update within 10 days, your registration will be effective as of the date you originally sent it.
🚨 NOTE: If you sent your registration before the Oct. 9th deadline, you can still vote if you update your information!

Great news! Today, after hearing from thousands of Texans, the @TXsecofstate issued additional guidance to voters & election officials regarding Hart eSlate Electronic Voting Machines. Last night, we sent a letter to the Secretary. #ProtectOurVote…
This is an enormous victory for voters in Texas. Thousands of you shared your concerns & signed our petition asking the @TXsecofstate to take action.…
Throughout the week we received multiple reports from voters who voted straight-ticket, then saw on a later screen that their vote for a particular race was changed to that of the opposite party.

🚨 ALERT: We have received multiple reports from voters who voted straight-ticket, then saw on a later screen that their votes were changed to that of the opposite party. You must check your ballot before casting to ensure it’s correct, and you can ask a poll worker for help.
As a @TXsecofstate advisory explains, the issue arises because of the confusing and antiquated way the voting machine operates—not a conspiracy to change votes. More details here:…
The eHart voting machines were brought into use at the turn of the century. Texas is in desperate need to modernize our election systems. In the meantime:
- Check your ballot
- Ask a poll worker for help
- Call us at 866-OUR-VOTE if you have questions
