DAILY BEAST TUMBLRS

But defending our freedom is not the job of our military alone.  We must all do our part to make sure our God-given rights are protected here at home.  That includes our most fundamental right as citizens:  the right to vote.  When any Americans – no matter where they live or what their party – are denied that right simply because they can’t wait for five, six, seven hours just to cast their ballot, we are betraying our ideals.  That’s why, tonight, I’m announcing a non-partisan commission to improve the voting experience in America.

Having trouble voting at the polls? NewsBeast Labs put together this awesome little tool to help voters report instances of voter intimidation, long lines, or any other issues throughout the coming 24 hours. Keep this handy, pass it around. Most importantly, VOTE.

This is pretty cool.
