Emergency Rally to Demand Fair and Accountable Elections and to Support the Recount in Ohio Monday, December 6th 12:00 Noon House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi 450 Golden Gate Ave., Burton Fed. Bldg. San Francisco, CA 94102 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 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. Cosponsored by United For Peace And Justice, The American Friends Service Committee (Pacific Mountain Region), CODEPINK Bay Area, Tikkun Community and the Ronald Reagan Home for the Criminally Insane
