As we gear up for the 2008 election, Catholics who are engaged in the political process for the common good need to help ensure the integrity of the electoral process.
In the 2004 presidential election, there were many incidents of voter intimidation and suppression, uncounted provisional votes, long waits for few voting machines in inner city neighborhoods, and problems with electronic voting machines. Across the country, it is estimated that 3 million votes were uncounted. A documentary by David Earnhardt entitled Uncounted examines these uncounted votes and "shares well documented stories about the spine-chilling disregard for the right to vote in America."
Denying someone the right to vote is a moral issue and we as Catholic Democrats encourage you to help to ensure that all votes are counted. Be informed; find out your state's policies on voting and get involved in the movement to ensure that every vote is counted in America.
We encourage you to visit the official website of Uncounted. Please visit the link to watch the trailer, order the dvd or see when and where it is being screened in your city: view link here
