Action alert: Calling all Ohio Independents!

I have been concerned about the voting machines foisted upon us by Kenneth Blackwell for some time now. Now it is being reported on Lou Dobbs on CNN that the machines are very undependable and elections can be fixed. For Kenneth Blackwell to have anything to do with the process of getting the Diebold Computer Voting machines is a Conflict of Interest since he has stock in the company & used a no-bid process is unbelievable.

Kenneth Blackwell's run for Governor is a "Conflict of Interest" and should be challenged in a Court of Law, since he is the head of the Election Commission in the State of Ohio. I would hope that other people besides myself would find the above items a little upsetting to say the least, or is everyone asleep at the wheel or could care less if such things are happening in the buckeye state or indeed in the U.S. where deep concerns about the abuse of our voting rights are in question. If the whole election is fixed to come out to make sure the party in power is going to be the winner, doesn't this concern you?

I have a question for all Independent voters in Ohio. At the primary election 2006, my wife and I arrived at the Mifflin Fire Department, Ashland County, to vote, we were told we were registered Republicans, we have been registered independents for years.. What makes this a little strange is, a few minutes later, another couple arrived & were also told they were registered Republicans, again they were registered Independents. My question to all registered Independents, Did this also happen to you, or has it happened to you in the past few years, and if so please call me at: 419-368-6074 and let me know. What worries me, if this happened to all Independents in Ohio, wouldn't that sway the way the primary election came out over Democrats? Did this just happen in one precinct, one county, or all over Ohio? Please take the time to call and let me know if this happened to you.
