8pm PT correction: nearly 2 million votes uncounted in all of California - LA County has 410,000 uncounted ballots.

California's passage of Proposition 8 – the same sex marriage ban - is in question.  All CA residents are urged to assist in Velvet Revolution's efforts by using the mail to link at bottom of this VR post.  Because software is undetectably mutable, all election results that stem from it are questionable.  This year alone, numerous reports across the nation show that all of the computerized voting systems in use have failed by: 

·         Switching votes;

·         Dropping votes;

Reporting more votes than voters;

·         Failing to give the same count when the same ballots were run through the scanners;

Breaking down completely. 

Nearly two million ballots remain uncounted in California, yet Prop 8 reportedly passed by 500,000 votes.  Officials show bias when reporting passage of a proposition when the outcome is not fully known. 

The LGBT community has hooked up with election integrity advocates who are now investigating California's vote on Prop 8.  Join us.

Protests are good for raising public awareness, blowing off steam, and building community.  But they will not overturn fraudulent results – only an investigation by serious, honest, intelligent people can do that.   

The process is simple; you serve as official observers during the hand count audit, taking accurate notes or steady video.  Right now, counties are preparing this audit.  Training for observation takes about an hour; and we're asking you to commit to at least four hours, but we hope you give substantially more time to this project. It's best to observe with a buddy, so that details aren't missed, but a diligent observer can achieve the same effective oversight.  It's also best to bring a video camera and tripod, but accurate, clear, well-written notes can also suffice. 

Join us; 

Forward this post to your friends and lists in California;  

Let's take a look at those reported results; 

Together, we can determine the true outcome of Proposition 8.

In 2004, Rady Ananda joined the growing community of citizen journalists. Initially focused on elections, she investigated the 2004 Ohio election, organizing, training and leading several forays into counties to photograph the 2004 ballots. She officially served at three recounts, including the 2004 recount. She also organized and led the team that audited Franklin County Ohio's 2006 election, proving the number of voter signatures did not match official results. Her work appears in three books.

Her blogs also address religious, gender, sexual and racial equality, as well as environmental issues; and are sprinkled with book and film reviews on various topics. She spent most of her working life as a researcher or investigator for private lawyers, and five years as an editor.
