No More Stolen Elections!
Republicans stole the elections of 2000, 2002, and 2004 through dozens of dirty tricks - before, during, and after Election Day - to make sure Democratic votes did not count.
It's time for Democratic voters to fight back!
MyDem.org was created to give Democratic voters the tools we need to make sure our votes count - so Republicans never steal another election!
1. Register My Vote
Are you registered? Are you sure? Your recent application may have been lost or rejected - or your past registration may have been purged.
"Google" your registration to find out!

|2. Cast My Vote
a. Should you vote absentee? Definitely yes if you can't get to the polls.
But absentee tabulators can be hacked or rigged, so we only recommend absentee voting if your county uses paperless touchscreens - in purple on the map.

Americans living overseas - use VoteFromAbroad.org
b. How do I vote in person?
Some states allow Early Voting at the County Election Office or at a small number of convenient locations.
Will there be problems at the polls on Election Day? Absolutely.
ProtectMyVote.org has valuable information about relocation of polling places, Photo ID's, purging of registered voters, provisional ballots, voter intimidation, and machine breakdowns.
