If you’re transgender, visit the “Voting While Trans” website to ensure your vote counts!

THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — To ensure transgender Americans keep their right to vote in the upcoming presidential election, the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) released PSAs and tools to prepare trans people for how to vote in their state. http://www.votingwhiletrans.org

Republicans have managed to enact legislation in a number of states beefing up the ID requirements that must be met before casting a vote. “Voter fraud” is the reason they’re using for these restrictions, but for all practical purposes, these laws were enacted by the GOP because they impact Democrats the most — the poor and the disenfranchised. By discouraging them, they’re hoping many stay home. This is especially true for trans people — stricter photo ID requirement have some wondering if they ought to spare themselves the potential chance for embarrassment and just stay home. DON’T! Use the NCTE link and make your vote count!

NCTE Executive Director Mara Keisling on the “Voting While Trans campaign: “Our message is don’t let them scare you into giving up your vote.”

Go here http://www.votingwhiletrans.org and make it easy on yourself. Staying home could mean we’ll be greeting President Mitt Romney in January. If that happens, we’ll all be third-rate citizens once again.

I wrote this earlier this year about the GOP’s attempt to discourage Democrats from voting: http://lexiecannes.wordpress.com/2012/04/14/gop-backed-voter-id-laws-could-disenfranchise-25000-transgender-voters/
