Emergency Paper Ballot Bill If You Will Speak Out Now

The election season is just getting started, and already the recount in New Hamphire, where they DO have paper ballots, has exposed missing memory cards and other machine related breakdowns. As if we did not have enough proof already, we simply cannot trust our sacred right to vote in this critical upcoming election to secret proprietary machines owned by radically partisan private corporations.

For this reason there is renewed urgency to assist any jurisdiction that has had it with those infernal problematic machines, and wants to switch back to tried, true and AUDITABLE paper ballots. Rush Holt has introduced a stop gap bill, and once again, John Laesch, candidate for the old Hastert seat in IL-14 is demonstrating his own leadership on this issue.

John Laesch is running in a special primary election coming up in just 2 weeks on Feb 5th, that can help set the tone for the entire primary season to come.

As the Democratic nominee in 2006, John Laesch pulled 40 percent against the powerful incumbent Hastert in the general election, and John is in the running again. With numbers like that, and especially given the shift in public sentiment in the last two years, this is a very winnable race.

Here is John's message to you on the importance of acting now to bring back paper ballots everywhere:


Protect the Integrity of Our Democracy!

Representative Rush Holt (D-NJ) has introduced the "Emergency Assistance for Secure Elections Act of 2008". This act will help election authorities using e-voting to convert to paper ballots, offer emergency paper ballots or convert audits by hand counts. We want to make sure that every vote is counted, that every election result is verifiable.

Accoring to Holt, there are six states that have no verifiable paper trail and counties in 16 other states have the same problem. That means 20 states cannot fully verify their votes in the primaries or the November Presidential election.

This is no way to run a Democracy. This legislation needs to be passed immediately to protect our elections! Our democracy can only be as strong as the integrity of our elections. It is critical that we support Rep. Holt’s legislation. Citizens need to know that their vote will be counted, and that they can trust our electoral process.

Help us ensure our elections are transparent and verifiable, and protect the integrity of our democracy!

Let your representative know that We the People want all our votes tocount.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this alert as widely as possible.
