New York's Democratic Party is writing to registered Democrats telling them that unnamed organizations are monitoring their neighborhood's election turnout and that the party will want an explanation if they do not cast a ballot.
The letters went out to about 1 million voters this week ahead of Tuesday's election. It represents a get-out-the-vote tactic that is being used increasingly around the country by both parties.
The letters note that "who you vote for is your secret. But whether or not you vote is public record."
