  •  To win 2006 (none)
    we need to make election reform issue number 1 in the minds of every voter, blue, red, or green.

    After the debacle of Florida 2000, there was no excuse whatsoever for Ohio 04.06 is even more crucial. The morning after it'll be to late to say "What happened?" We've had enough warning.

    2000 and 04 were so very close. The Rethugs have'nt exactly been winning converts from our side or the centrists with their policies. Given free, fair, open, and honest voting, we'll win easily. So the fight between now and next November MUST concentrate on voting reform. That's the key to winning.

    Paper ballots. Hand counted. IN PUBLIC.

      on the functional level for that amount of election reform in that many states and places. There's only eleven months until the election. We need to win big in enough elections so that any chicanery is offset.

      •  Agreed (4.00)
        The point is to raise AWARENESS about fraud and election reform. It's a bit of a Catch-22 anyway: we need to win elections in the first place in order to take power to enact the reforms necessary to win the elections in order to take power. Whew!

        In the meantime, our battle cry must be "Paper ballots, hand counted, IN PUBLIC". Put it on T shirts, bumper stickers, etc. Spread it to every blog and put it in your LTEs and letters to congresscritters and your Sec of State.

        Come election day, use your absentee ballot if you live in a Diebold district. But what I'd really like to see is Blue voters staying at the polls after they've voted, in a show of numbers. Let us literaly Stand Up and Be Counted.
