Call to Citizen Journalists: Join Us and #WatchTheVote

DENVER, Colo. – announced today that it will deploy video teams to key swing states on election day to monitor and document any voter intimidation tactics that might occur. In addition, is urging citizens to participate in the effort by acting as election day polling place watchdogs. Kelly Maher, Executive Director ofRevealing Politics, released a video announcing to the public a strong coordinated push for citizen journalists to watch polling locations and deter voter fraud called “#WatchTheVote”. The video also calls on viewers to join in, and video any suspicious behavior they encounter at polling locations.

“At Revealing Politics we have deployed trained video teams to Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin” said Maher. “We also encourage citizens who notice anything odd to document and report it.”

Revealing Politics staff and videographers have all been briefed on the specific laws in each state in which they’ll be operating, and have been instructed their primary goal is to “tell a story, not be a story.” They will, however, diligently film and report any behavior that could be seen as voter intimidation by individuals, groups or officials.

Revealing Politics strongly urges all citizen journalists to be aware of the state and local laws regarding videotaping.

Revealing Politics is a 501(c)4 organization dedicated to education. Since launching on June 1, 2012 the Revealing Politics YouTube channel has garnered over 1.2 million video views.

    In 1960, when most of the nation’s transit was private (and profitable), 7.81 million people took transit to work. By 2015, the nation’s working population had grown by nearly 130 percent, and taxpayers had spent well over a trillion dollars improving and operating urban transit systems.

    In 2015, the American Public Transportation Association issued a press release whose headline claimed that transit ridership in 2014 achieved a new record. However, the story revealed that 2014 ridership was the highest since 1956. That’s no more a record than if it was the highest since 2013. The truth is that America’s urban population […]
