Donate now through http://savetheballots.org!
As regular readers of The Free Press (http://freepress.org) know, a handful
of investigative reporters, lawyers, Ph.D. statisticians, and voting rights
have been following the presidential election evidence trail since the 2004
election. This spring, Free Press reporters and others were able to start
at ballots in suspect counties for the first time. When we looked and did our
hand counts, we found evidence of ballot box stuffing - with paper ballots and
vote-counting computers, and official precinct results that were off by hundreds
The ballots are the smoking gun to explain what happened in Ohio in 2004.
They were not made public until earlier this year, and after September 2, 2006,
election officials across Ohio are legally allowed to destroy them. We have been
told by election officials in the most problem-plagued counties they can't wait
until Sept. 3rd, because then people asking questions will go home.
before the history can be told. Destroying the ballots is destroying the
at a crime scene. It is our civil right to know that U.S. election are free,
honestly counted. Help us preserve this critical public record and raise the bar
for accountable elections.
Please make a tax-deductible contribution. We need to look at the ballots.
We need to know why more than 75,000 computer punch card ballots, and
more than 6,000 paper optical-scan ballots were rejected, never examined
and not counted in 2004. We need to know how rural Ohioans really voted
in 2004, and how the president's vote totals were fraudulently inflated.
