HOW TO CONDUCT
In an August 2006 Zogby poll, U.S. citizens nearly unanimously agreed they want transparency in the election process. An open, transparent election process, guided by citizen oversight, provides a basis for confidence in reported election results. Hand-counting paper ballots, rather than electrons, is the most secure, most accurate, and least expensive of all voting systems. Let's do it. firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
She graduated from The Ohio State University's School of Agriculture in December 2003 with a B.S. in Natural Resources.
