ALGOP Announces Ballot Security Initiative

Birmingham - The Alabama Republican Party has initiated an aggressive 2008 Ballot Security Program. Every county in Alabama is being covered by an attorney, and representatives of the Alabama GOP are checking absentee ballot counts and registration rolls several times a week. In addition, poll watchers stand ready across the state to ensure the honesty and integrity of this year’s election. The large number of people working daily to guarantee the citizens of Alabama are safely protected against voter fraud is unparalleled, and the Alabama Republican Party encourages voters to stay vigilant and to please contact the Party, via the numbers below, should they witness any suspicious activity.

The Alabama GOP has set up two toll-free hotline numbers, in which citizens may call at anytime to express voter fraud concerns and happenings. These two numbers are:

1-866-675-2772 and 1-866-675-5803

Rep. Mike Hubbard (R-Auburn), Chairman of the Alabama Republican Party stated:

“It is imperative that we protect the legitimacy of our elections, and it is our hope that these ballot security initiatives will assist in deterring the abuse of our electoral system. We encourage any Alabama resident who witnesses instances of voter fraud, or feels that they have been subjected to unusual circumstances with regard to the normal voting process, to please call our toll free numbers and report this activity so that we may alert the appropriate agency.”
