An army of ten thousand will protect voter's rights next Tuesday

Three partners and an associate from the law firm, Hurley, McKenna & Mertz, are traveling to Florida to guard against voter interference. They are amount the over ten thousand lawyer monitors—partisan and nonpartisan—volunteering their time in Florida and other battleground states key to deciding who will be the next president.

"As a lawyer, I never have liked it when somebody bullies someone out of their civil rights," says Hurley, a registered Democrat and veteran trial lawyer. "I have a guttural response to that."

Democrats will have at least 2,000 lawyers like Hurley headed to Florida, with another 8,000 distributed throughout the country. The GOP has its own army of lawyers supporting the GOP "Victory" legal team to monitor the polls and act as first responders if problems arise. The Rainbow/PUSH Coalition teamed up with the National Bar Association to announce plans to send teams of lawyers to monitor polls, especially in battleground states. Other activist organizations have announced similar monitoring efforts.
