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

We insist that House Minority Leader Pelosi and all of our representatives take
immediate action to safeguard the elections process.

We demand draft legislation to ensure:

Minimum standards in the 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.

We urgently ask:

That House Minority Leader Pelosi 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 Pelosi 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 Pelosi 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.
