Welcome to the Democracy Defense League official website.
As you read this, our American men and women are fighting and dying to ensure that the people of Afghanistan and Iraq can vote in open and honest elections.
The Democracy Defense League was organized in January of 2005 because it became obvious that our own elections were threatened by the actions of corrupt individuals and a lack of effective laws and enforcement to combat these actions. The events that triggered the formation of the DDL took place in Hale County, but these events can and do occur in all of our counties and affect each of us, regardless of our place of residence. Because state law governs every referendum, whether statewide or local, it is in your interest to work for honest elections in all counties. Representatives sent to Montgomery as a result of fraudulent elections will continue their dishonest practices while they are there, passing laws which negatively impact all of us.
The Democracy Defense League is a nonpartisan, multi-racial organization dedicated to the elimination of voter fraud in Alabama through legal means. To this end, our efforts will include the following actions:
- Vigorously encouraging the appropriate legal authorities to thoroughly investigate and prosecute voting-related crimes in all Alabama counties;
- Working with the appropriate legislative authorities to overhaul our election laws and voter registration requirements, including the elevation of voting-related crimes to the status of a Class A felony;
- Actively promoting public awareness of the consequences that voter fraud imposes on communities, all levels of government, and the democratic process.
We cannot rely on our elected officials to correct this problem; it will require widespread public pressure from grassroots organizations like the DDL. Our effectiveness will depend in large part on the numbers of people who will join forces with us. Membership is free. Please take a stand and Join us now. We are your friends and neighbors, and your membership, just like your vote, really does count!
