ATTN: CA Voters. SOS Debra Bowen Wants to Talk to You!
With the 2008 election cycle fast approaching us, everyone is concerned about their votes being counted, not just expeditiously, BUT ACCURATELY!
I just received this e-mail from "Rick Jacobs, Courage Campaign" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Whether or not you are a California voter, this rare opportunity for a conference call with California Secretary of State Debra Bowen should inspire all of you who reside and vote in CA, to participate in ensuring the validity of the election process, but especially the Democratic activists here who call Dkos home, no matter what state they are from.
Please follow me under the fold for the text of her letter, and help make YOUR VOTE COUNT IN '08!
THE FOLLOWING IS THE TEXT OF HER MESSAGE:
"Debra Bowen was elected Secretary of State in November as a netroots/grassroots candidate, the only statewide elected woman and a true Courage Campaign progressive hero.
Now, Secretary Bowen is responsible for assuring that California's votes count and are counted. She is already off to an incredible start and wants to tell you all about it.
This Monday at 4 p.m., please join us for an open discussion with Secretary Bowen, as she shares with us the historic work she has done to protect our vote as well as her upcoming plans
Secretary Bowen has garnered headlines across the country for her "Top to Bottom Review" of California's electronic voting machines. The results, exposing gaping security holes, were so shocking that she moved immediately to decertify thousands of machines. Since then, she has started an investigation into the illegal sale of non-certified voting machines to numerous California counties.
Debra Bowen has been working hard to ensure we have fair, safe and secure elections. This is a rare chance for you to hear directly from Secretary Bowen about her work protecting our votes and her plans for the THREE, count them THREE, elections next year.
Join Courage Campaign and Debra Bowen for a special conference call on Monday at 4 p.m. Space on the call is limited so hurry to reserve a phone line before we run out:
