Watch the Lefty Poll Watchers

The leftwing agitators will be out in full force tomorrow, just begging to get slapped while sticking their noses in your business.

Michelle Malkin notes here about the efforts by some, ahem, nonpartisan groups with the innocent sounding names such as Election Protection Coalition and Voter Action.

The Wall Street Journal calls them a New Breed of Watchdog.

When Americans go to vote tomorrow, a new breed of activist will be on guard, monitoring polling stations for everything from voting-machine glitches to long lines to registration snafus.

Energized by disputed results in 2000 and 2004, they have left jobs as music conductors, real-estate agents and software engineers to form groups that expect to turn out thousands of volunteers who don't trust the country's ability to count its votes and have decided to do something about it.

"This is going to be the most heavily watched election in history," predicts Marybeth Kuznik, who founded a group called VotePA after the 2004 election to monitor voting issues in Pennsylvania. Ms. Kuznik, a former arts educator, calls herself a "progressive," but says VotePA includes members of both major parties, two minor parties and independents.

Let's hope they're too busy minding everyone else's business that they forget to vote.
