Emergency Rally to Demand Fair and Accountable Elections and to Support the
Recount in Ohio.
Monday, November 29th 12:00 Noon
Office of Senator Barbara Boxer
1700 Montgomery St., #240
San Francisco, CA 94111
We insist that Senator Boxer and all of our representatives take immediate
action to safeguard the elections process. A small contingent of us have
been invited to talk with Boxer's aide, which we very much appreciate! We
would like to have a huge group of people outside to show support and to
make a lot of joyful democratic noise!
We demand draft legislation to ensure:
- Minimum standards in voting procedures 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
- 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.
We urgently ask:
That Senator Boxer join with Reps. 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 Boxer, 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 Boxer support the Ohio Democratic Party in their lawsuit to
order Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell to impose uniform standards for
counting provisional votes in all 88 counties.
