Next Pres Vote Needs to Be Monitored for Fairness 31.Aug.2003 15:27
Judith P.

Just like Haiti or where there is a dictatorship, the coming election needs to be monitored and closely watched. Already in Oregon, they (Republican Senate)failed to pass the Money needed for the election pamphlet. Last election, many minorities did not get to vote or if they did their vote was not counted. Again they conveniently still have the punchcard type ballots in minority communities. I agree long term stategy is required, Florida was not an accident--Having a Bush in Florida and Texas was not an accident. If this Defeat Bush Now organization takes off, please devote time an effort not only in getting people to vote but that ftheir vote is counted.
