Are Calling Upon YOU!
URGENT ACTION ITEM!
ELECTION REFORM IN CRUCIAL PHASE!
For weeks, election reform activists have been waiting for Rep. Rush Holt to
unveil the new version of his former HR 550 bill which, last Congressional
session, included highly objectionable proposals such as adding printers to
electronic voting machines (which were designed for fraud); unacceptably low
audit amounts; and empowering the partisan Election Assistance Commission (EAC)
whose members are selected by President Bush.
Previews of the new version of this bill indicate it still concentrates
on technology standards for elections, not democracy standards! The problem
is, this bill has more co-sponsors (around 190) than any other proposed
election reform legislation. Unless they are STOPPED RIGHT NOW, Congress may
ram this bill through WITHIN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS, and consider election fraud
issues solved! That is why we need YOUR HELP NOW!
We urgently ask that you one or more of the actions listed below,
delivering the message suggested here:
1. MAKE AN APPOINTMENT with the legislative aide to your
Congressional representative at their home office in your state and
personally go in
& see them.
2. MAKE A PHONE APPOINTMENT with that aide to discuss the issue
3. WRITE A LETTER TO THE EDITOR to your local paper or CALL IN to
local talk shows to discuss the issue.
THREE DEMANDS TO MAKE!
1. HALT HOLT! We absolutely CANNOT ALLOW THIS “ELECTION REFORM
BILL” TO PASS! Congress, in its haste, is about to make one of the most
critical and most expensive blunders in history, all because they are
RUSHING INTO ACTION WITHOUT KNOWING THE FACTS!
2. WE MUST HAVE Congressional hearings that include citizen input to
study true solutions to election fraud, including studying implementation of
safely executed hand-counted paper ballots elections. Both types of
computers used to cast AND count votes (touchscreens, or DREs) and Optical
Scan counters) have been proven to be easily hacked and manipulated. We must
have clean election systems in place by 2008!
3. CITIZENS who request them must have ACCESS TO ELECTION RECORDS
and ballots through Freedom of Information Act in a timely, affordable
fashion, with no withholding of data due to “trade secret” or “proprietary
information” claims of voting machine vendors. Records must be delivered
timely so that their review can impact election results, if applicable,
BEFORE election results are certified and the (incorrect) candidate takes
