NO STOLEN ELECTIONS!
www.Nov3.US
.
We all remember the votes that were never counted in Florida 2000.
.
While we are all working hard for a positive outcome on November 2nd, we also have to be prepared for a repeat of a 2000 stolen election. Below is a pledge for people to sign, supporting efforts to mobilize and protect the vote on November 2nd and making a commitment to protest starting on November
3rd in the case of a fraudulent vote count.
.
By signing this pledge, you will be joining with thousands of others in the November 3rd Urgent Response Network. Please sign the pledge at  http://www.nov3.us/ and pass it around far and wide.
.
We are setting up a Fair Elections Advisory Council made up of U.S. and international elections experts who will give us their assessment on election day itself. If they find significant fraud, we will activate the Urgent Response Network on or immediately after November 3rd, calling on
people everywhere to engage in protest, including non-violent civil disobedience, in front of their local federal buildings and other appropriate places.
.
We will also be asking those who can to converge in the states where the most serious fraud occurred, as well as in Washington DC.
.
In addition to signing the pledge, please work with other people and groups in your area to protect the vote on November 2nd and to build the Urgent Response Network. Pick a venue for your local protest in the case that the Urgent Response Network is activated, and list the time and place on
the website at  http://www.nov3.us /
.
We also recommend that you set up a place to jointly watch the election results on November 2nd.
.
Let us commit ourselves to making sure that this time around, the person who occupies the White House is the one who won the election.
.
