Specific Actions You Can Take Immediately!
Emergency Measures to Protect the 2004 Vote Count in Your County

VotersUnite! in partnership with the National Ballot Integrity Project is proposing Emergency Measures to Protect the 2004 Vote Count. Join with us and make a difference.

Post this plan on bulletin boards and blogs, so people start acting on it.

Propose that your county use hand counted paper ballots for federal offices in the November election.

1) Gather a group (possibly through meetups if you have them near you) to plan a meeting with your county leaders, and with your state election officials if possible.

2) Print this petition for each 10 signatures. Get many, many signatures on the petitions. Make enough copies of the signed petitions for your county leaders, local election official, and state election official.

3) Print this summary. Then meet with your county leaders and election official and present the summary to them. Propose that they use hand counted paper ballots for federal offices as an emergency measure to ensure the accuracy of the vote count and protect the county from legal challenges. Deliver the signed petitions.

To find contact information for your county election official:

a. Go to the electionline.org interactive map.
b. Click on your state.
c. Click on your county to display contact info in the upper right corner of the window.

4) Meet with your state election official, if possible, to present the same proposal with the signed petitions. Or, mail signed petitions to them.

To find contact information for your state election official:

a. Go to the electionline.org interactive map.
b. In "Step 2: Define Region", click on "all states."
c. Click on your state to display contact info in the upper right corner of the window.

5) Continue talking with your county leaders about your proposal, especially if you are in a county that uses paperless voting machines or has had problems in the past. This is too important not to persist.

Share accounts of your activities and results in the discussion forum for your state. Read what others are doing to get additional ideas.


Democracy is not something you believe in
or a place to hang your hat,
but it's something you do.
You participate.
If you stop doing it, democracy crumbles.
