After countless opinion polls trying to predict what voters will do on Nov. 7 (here and here), we’re just hours away from the opening of the only polls that count.
To ensure that your vote is counted, please heed Sunnyland Slim’s advice and “be careful how you vote.” And know your rights.
Tomorrow I’ll be in DC, where I’ll be blogging live from the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation’s War Room. National black leaders, political analysts and voting rights experts, including Clayola Brown, Unity '06 Convener Melanie Campbell, Dr. Joe Leonard, Marc Morial, Prof. Charles Ogletree, Dr. Ron Walters and Reg Weaver will track in real-time what's happening on the ground.
They will provide reports on black voter turnout and their voting experiences (read: voting while black) in key states, including Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Virgina.
So, we will tell our story. At the same time if folks get stupid (here and here), we’ll run and tell everyone we know.
