Concerns About Our Voting System
If you have concerns that our voting system is not quite right, then please support Rep. John Conyers in his efforts to hold hearings in Congress about the 2004 elections. Rep. Conyers feels he needs a million e-mails to compel the House Judiciary Committee to hold the hearings. Your email will make a difference; without our support, he cannot move forward.
Go here:and tell the Judiciary Committee you want hearings on Ohio!
You can copy and paste in this sample message:
I am writing to urge the House Judiciary Committee to hold
hearings as soon as possible on the irregularities of the 2004
election. I need not remind the Judiciary Committee members that the
United States is a beacon of democracy for the rest of the world. If
we truly wish to remain the embodiment of democratic values, then we
must treat the right of every citizen to vote and for their vote to
count as sacred. Ample evidence has arisen that this right was
violated or undermined for many Americans in the 2004 election. I
strongly believe that holding hearings to investigate and resolve
these irregularities would be an act of tremendous patriotism on the
part of Congress, and would serve as a declaration that we are the
world's greatest democracy not only in word, but in deed.

There's a growing awareness, with increasing coverage now in national
papers such as the Washington Post and LA Times, that we need an
investigation of the voter suppression and other fraud in Ohio and
Like Watergate, this issue will build momentum -- and we, the people,
to keep it alive until it can no longer be ignored.
