Announcing a new event for Americans for Verifiable Elections!

What: Texas Straw Poll

When: Friday, August 31, 7:00 PM

Where: (A location for this event hasn't been chosen yet)


Texans for Real Elections, which includes VoteRescue, Independent Texans, Project for the New American Citizen, and the Texas Motorcycle Riders Association (among others), in conjunction with Vote In Sunshine will be monitoring the Texas Straw Poll on Friday, August 31st and Saturday, September 1st in Fort Worth, at the Fort Worth Convention Center, and YOUR HELP IS NEEDED! CAN YOU COME TO TEXAS AND REPEAT the EXCELLENT job you did in Ames, Iowa? We hope so! We will give you a BIG Texas welcome!

Volunteers are needed as videographers, and for one or more of the following: conducting a simple exit poll; gathering signatures for a petition; distribution literature, counting voters coming out of the Fort Worth Convention Center, and other possibilities.

We have learned that paper ballots will be used in this Straw Poll election, and we are confirming the counting method. We assume it will be optical scan counters, in which case, massive monitoring efforts will be needed.

If you can be in Fort Worth Friday and Saturday, August 31st and September 1st, please contact:
