It's Not Too Late! Push Hillary for Recount in 6 Key States Did human error, computer glitches, hacking, or other problems change the outcome? While there is, as yet, no compelling evidence, the news about hacking and deliberate interference makes it worth finding out. Please contact Sen. Gillibrand and Congresswoman Lowey (info included) to ask HRC to press for a recount. This is not (only) about her; it's about all of us and what faces our nation if she does not!

What Can We Do Now To Protect the November Election "Politics is the way a free people govern themselves." --Bernard Crick. Our elections can be honest if all citizens participate in conducting and observing them. Our governmental policies can provide for the good of all citizens if all citizens participate in our civic and political life--and provide the kind of knowledgeable oversight that can keep democratic government honest. Americans need to tithe our free time for this.

Several lists of problems and amendments have been submitted to Congress.

ACTION ALERT! Amend HR811--contact your members of Congress ASAP Editor's Note: While this letter from activist Teresa Hommel gives information for local (NY) elected representatives, it is pertinent to ALL of us, wherever we may live.

Victory in NY City Council Resolution 131 for paper ballots and optical scanners passed the New York City Council by unanimous vote today, March 14, 2007. The resolution was brilliantly written by the council to make clear to all that elections must be observed by the people, and should not require "trust" in computer experts to say whether the votes were properly handled.(Ed.note: a step in the right direction,showing 'people power' at its best.)
