Action Alert! Call LA County Clerk to express support for SoS Bowen

Hello Friends, I received the following email from DFA, Democracy for America. They are asking people to contact the office of Conny McCormack, the Los Angeles County Clerk, and express support for Secretary of State Debra Bowen's top-down review of voting machine systems and components and the restrictions Sec. Bowen has placed on these machines.

Ms. McCormack has said she is not happy with Sec. Bowen's review and restrictions, and shockingly, Ms. McCormack expressed concern about Diebold's financial bottom line. That is just not acceptable. click here

I just now called and very politely expressed my support for Debra Bowen and the changes and restrictions that she has ordered, and said I hoped Ms. McCormack would work with Debra Bowen's office to ensure that registered voters can cast their votes, and that all votes are counted and counted accurately. I also said it was inappropriate for Ms. McCormack to concern herself in any way with Diebold's financial situation. The receptionist was very nice and said they'd received "several calls in support of Debra Bowen" and that she'd let Ms. McCormack know about it.

More information from BradBlog can be found here.

The information and some talking points are below. Please call if you can. Thank you for caring about your democracy.

From DFA:

Dear Stephen,
Please Call Right Now!

Conny McCormack
County Clerk


"I support Secretary of State
Debra Bowen's decision to
restore election integrity and
ban unsafe voting machines.
I'm counting on you
to support the ban
and protect our votes."

California is leading the nation again. Last Friday, Secretary of State Debra Bowen took a major step forward in restoring election integrity by decertifying electronic voting machines with the "potential for serious security breaches." ╣ Our DFA-List endorsed candidate followed through on her campaign promise to require a top-to-bottom review of election procedures and take action on the results.

Now Sacramento lobbyists and media pundits are trying to stop reform and influence the county officials charged with implementing the changes. That's why your county official in charge of elections needs to hear from you today:

Conny McCormack
County Clerk
Los Angeles

We can make hundreds of calls today and have an effective impact, but only if we stay on message and stick to one issue. Please tell them:

"I support Secretary of State Debra Bowen's decision to restore election integrity and ban unsafe voting machines. I'm counting on you to support the ban and protect our votes."

After you make the call, please report how it went here:

Debra Bowen has come through for California. Now it is up to you to stand by her and make sure every vote counts. Thank you for calling today!

P.S. Here are a few tips for your call:
-It is okay to only speak with the receptionist
-Identify yourself as a constituent and a voter
-Be friendly and polite, but firm
-Thank them for their time
