  •  Ballot initiative (4.00)
    Anyone given any thought to crafting an initiative for either the June 2006 or November 2006 ballot to throw out these types of machines? That may be a bit late, but something has got to be done to ensure CA doesn't get stolen.

    Also, the office of Secretary of State is up for election next year. We will have to ensure that a Democrat wins.

    •  Debra Bowen (4.00)
      Dem running for Secretary of State.  Extremely knowledgable about all things electoral.  I've discussed this subject with her and she "gets it" more than most anybody outside Rush Holt in Congress.  She's currently a State Senator.  There is one other Dem female who has announced she too will run.  

      But, Bowen is the one for elections.  Author of the best clean election bills signed and not signed.  She even has a bill to weaken the Secty of States' control over elections....to weaken the powers of the very office she's running for.

      Remember her name and help her campaign please!

      •  Recall Election???? (none)
        How about a recall election petition for the current Secretary of State? Get Debra  Bowen installed sooner?

        What's good for the recall goose is good for the recall gander!!!

        •  How about a recall for the entire government? (none)
          I could campaign for that with gusto...

          Keep your eye on Bowen, she's the real deal for elections.

          She just started a blog on her site as well if you want to "get to know her".
