I love this term for DRE's - "vapor ballots".

Excellent!

>From Bernie Ellis:

Folks,

Tomorrow may be the most important day yet in our fledgling fight to
protect our vote and save our democracy, here in Tennessee where so many
other successful battles to protect and expand the franchise have been
fought in the past. If lots of us show up tomorrow at the legislature to
stand together for a return to sanity (and safety) in our voting process, we
just might be heard. So please join us -- starting around
11:30 am -- outside Hearing Room 16 to talk informally with legislators
before we are the first item on the agenda of the House State and Local
Government committee, beginning at high noon.

By dumb luck (or divine providence), we are scheduled on the agenda to
precede a hotly contested ethics bill -- to demand lobbyist disclosure in
Tennessee. Because of that placement, we expect the media to be at the
legislature in force. Let's show them (and through them the rest of
Tennessee) that the most important issue this legislature will address --
for the future of our state and country -- is to move us away from "vapor
ballots" and toward free, fair and verifiable elections.

We can do this -- together. As the Hopi Elders have said, we are the ones we
have been waiting for. I hope to see you, and many, many others, tomorrow at
the legislature. Let's remind these elected officials what
patriotic democrats look like.

See you tomorrow. Bernie
