Unions, Internet giants plan to revolutionize voting


The AFL-CIO union has teamed up with an online voter advocacy group funded by Internet giants and left-wing billionaire George Soros in a new online voter registration drive, WND has found.

The People’s World, a news website associated with the Communist Party USA, reported last week that the “voter registration” plan is “just a click away.”

Reports the magazine: “The AFL-CIO has teamed up with TurboVote to make voting easy for you and for your friends and family. Not only can you register or update your registration, but TurboVote will help you with absentee ballots, vote-by-mail information, finding your polling place and even sending reminders by email and text so you won’t forget to vote.”

TurboVote, based in Brooklyn, New York, defines itself as “an application that makes voting easy.”

In the “What We Do” section of its website, TurboVote lays out its mission: “When you sign up (won’t you sign up?), we keep track of your elections, local and national. And if you need to get registered, update your voter registration, or request an absentee ballot, we’ll get you all the forms and information you need, when you need them.”

WND has found TurboVote is linked to Internet giants like Google. The website lists its seven funders, including Google Politics.

Another funder of TurboVote is the Democracy Fund, which was created in 2011 by eBay Founder Pierre Omidyar as an initiative of Omidyar Network. In 2014, the Democracy Fund became an independent private foundation.

TurboVote is also funded by the Sunlight Foundation, which in turn receives funds from billionaire George Soros’ Open Society.

While TurboVote currently focuses on functions to making voting easier, WND first reported that in largely unreported text, President Obama’s special commission on election reform recommended tablet computers, such as iPads, be used to cast votes.

Obama’s 10-person Presidential Commission on Election Administration released its recommendations this past January in a 99-page document available online.

Much of the media coverage of the commission’s conclusions focused on a summary of key recommendations provided by the White House.
