- Justice Watch: Justice Department Outsources Voting Rights Hotline
"...[I]t appears the Department of Justice (DOJ) has contracted its Voting Rights Section’s 2008 U.S. Election Hotline to none other than defense contractor Lockheed Martin. For those of you not familiar with this service, the hotline was created for callers to determine registration status, report voter
intimidation and suppression, and to ask general questions about voting procedures and eligibility.
