In the 2000 and 2004 elections, we saw the results of extreme Republican tactics to intimidate voters and steal the presidential election -- the disastrous presidency of George W. Bush. Today, we watch as Republicans go to even greater extremes -- even carrying guns to town hall meetings. If they are willing to go to such extremes now, how far will they go on November 6, 2012 to steal the election from President Barack Obama?
The Count Every Vote Campaign will counter the right wing and take steps now to protect the election in 2012. That means:
- * Electing reform-minded Secretaries of States in key battleground states
- * Requiring paper ballots and open source voting machines essential to a recount if necessary
- * Rolling back Republican laws aimed at suppressing the vote and intimidating and/or marginalizing minority communities
- * Spreading the word on blogs, social networks and in our communities Whatever else it takes to ensure a fair election in 2012
The Republicans and the right wing are already gearing up. Will you help us fight back?
