Emergency Rally to Demand Fair and Accountable Elections and to Support the Recount in Ohio.

Monday, November 22nd 12:00 Noon
Office Of Senator Diane Feinstein
One Post St (also the corner of Market and Montgomery)

We insist that Senator Feinstein and our representatives take immediate action to safeguard the elections process

We urgently ask:

That Senator Feinstein join with Rep. Conyers, Holt, Nadler, Scott, Watt, and Wexler in demanding a Government Accountability Office (GAO) investigation of the tens of thousands of reported complaints regarding the 2004 election.

That Senator Feinstein, as our senator, support the recount in Ohio being performed on the behalf of the Green and Libertarian candidates for president and the Nader Campaign's recount in New Hampshire as a non-partisan effort to ensure that every vote is counted.

That Senator Feinstein support the Ohio Democratic Party in their lawsuit to order Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell to impose uniform standards for counting provisional votes on all 88 counties.

Draft legislation to ensure -

Standardized voting method throughout the US.

An auditable paper trail for electronic and all voting machines.

That all "spoiled" ballots and provisional ballots are counted by hand and fairly.

To uphold and enforce the Voting Rights Act to prevent the continued disenfranchisement of minority voters.

A complete investigation into how to revamp the current processes to ensure fair and accountable elections.

Initial list of cosponsors: American Friends Service Committee Pacific Mountain Region, CODEPINK Bay Area, Marc Sapir of Retropoll, Reign of Error, Ronald Reagan Home for the Criminally Insane
