These may be the kinds of phrases you mumble while driving around Los Angeles wishing the few open parking spots weren’t so far away and didn’t have $4/hr (incl. Sunday) meters.

For the fifth year in a row I’m volunteering with Video the Vote, a nationwide team of individuals prepared to capture statements and video to document and defend any persons or groups who may be actively intimidated or disenfranchised at the polls. The purpose of collecting and posting these videos immediately has proven effective in the past… many polling places have been kept open later following complaints of long lines and other more serious complaints that have made it on to CNN.com and the local news.
