Chambliss v. Martin?


Some of the 40 Days staff has relocated to GA as the Peach State prepares for the Dec. 2nd run-off election between Republican incumbent Saxby Chambliss and Jim Martin. The last time GA had a run-off was 1992.

Now that we are up and running expect regular updates....

40 Days has noticed a number of democratic pro-Obama attorneys in the polling places in IA today but not were as friendly as the one in Ames.

Can we look?


Rules Governing Satellite Voting Stations

721- 21.300(5)(i) Supplies needed for each satellite absentee voting station: One or more ballot boxes equipped with locks and key, or tamper proof seals.

721- 21.300 (11)Issuing Absentee Ballots at Satellite Locations: #10 Storing Voted Ballots ... store them in a locked box.

Goodbye Victor! Goodbye ballot secrecy!

*Unfortunately this is one of many examples of the complete and utter disregard for the laws governing these places.*

Shots while we vote?


On 10/16 at the Northwest Community Center in Des Moines the satellite voting station was serving multiple purposes..... YES WE CAN was really hoping for "I VOTED TODAY" band-aids. Unfortunately, with all the money being spent on these satellite stations the band-aids were line-item vetoed



Billy Gene says she wanted to bring the voting out to the people in her mobile park because up to 50% of them are elderly or handicapped. Billie cared enough about her neighbors voting that she knew she could do something to make it easier for them. Billy doesn’t have a car, but she spent the entire morning hurrying around her mobile home park and nearby areas posting “Vote Today” Signs so that her neighbors knew it was time to vote. She was quick to yell at anyone passing by or coming into the center to get their mail that they needed to vote today.
