Good news. The Election Reform movement is gaining
momentum in the mainstream media. Robert Kennedy, Jr.
just came out with a scathing article in Rolling Stone
about the 2004 election:

Do you want to know what you can do to help ensure
that every vote is counted? And how you can support
"clean money" for our elections in California?

Get the answers from this most exceptional panel of
speakers:

1) Senator Debra Bowen (Dem Candidate for Secretary of
State!)

Senator Bowen has served in the State Legislature
since 1992, and has been a strong advocate for
consumer protection, privacy rights, and open
government. She is currently the Chair of the Senate
Elections Committee and has been treasured leader
among election reform activists across the country.

2) Lowell Finley, Voter Action

Lowell is the lead attorney on the lawsuit to remove
Diebold's voting machines from our polling places.
"We can't have trustworthy elections with Diebold's
touch-screen voting machines."

3) Trent Lange, VP of the California Clean Money
Campaign

Governor Schwarzenegger has a goal of raising 75
million dollars to win the governor's race this year.
Good people without access to big money can simply not
compete in this climate. As a result, we are not
getting the best candidates, but instead are getting
candidates indebted to their big contributors. The
system is out of wack. Trent will talk about the
status of the clean money campaign and how you can
help.
