We are doing some post-election work at the Election Protection Wiki,
which is online at http://epwiki.org

The election is over but the election problems will return unless the
system is reformed.  This election was not close enough for problems –
unintentional and intentional – to change the results, but the next
election could very well be.  So it is crucial that we assist efforts
to fix the election system and outlaw the deceptions and suppression
tactics.

As policymakers look back at the 2008 election they will need well-
researched sources of background information.  The Election Protection
Wiki serves as a hub where they will either find the information
directly or be directed to the organization or site that has it.

Here are ways that you can help:

Do you have any or know of any good election wrap-ups/summaries that
should be summarized for the EP Wiki? Please let us know, or add
summaries to appropriate pages.

We want our issue article on voter suppression to be a central "go-to"
for media and policymakers as they work to stamp out this undemocratic
tactic.  Can you take a look at it and add to it?

Help document what ACORN encountered in each state.  This is
especially important because policymakers could be acting largely on
information provided by ACORN's detractors.  We can help provide
accurate documentation of the real work ACORN does bringing new voters
into the process. http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=ACORN_and_elections

And finally, we hope our article on election reform proposals will
guide policymakers.  Please take a look and add your own policy-reform
suggestions.  http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Election_reform_proposals

Thanks,

Dave Johnson
