I noticed in the Arizona Daily Star's political events calendar this past Sunday that the Tea Party voter suppression organization True The Vote is planning a training in Tucson:
Nov. 3. Training for poll watchers. Two sessions: 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at Metro Water Bldg., 6265 N. La Cañada Drive. Sign up at www.truethevote.org/volunteer or by calling 877-3230.
If you check the True The Vote web site and message boards, and local Arizona Tea Party web sites and mesage boards, you will probably find other trainings planned in Arizona as well.
You can protect voters against these Tea Party voter suppression efforts. The Arizona Advocacy Network has an Election Protection training coming up as well:
