No Stolen Elections

No Stolen Elections

Thousands of lawyers are on their way to Florida to observe the counting of votes in precincts across the state on November 2. People for the American Way's Election Protection project still needs more people to volunteer, even though thousands have already signed up. The Election Protection project has been set up to ensure the votes of minorities in urban communities count just like everybody else's.

And Code Pink has announced that it has founded a No Stolen Elections Campaign along with Michael Moore, Dolores Huerta, and Jesse Jackson. The campaign is "setting up a Fair Elections Advisory Council made up of U.S. and international elections experts who will give their assessment on election day" on the voting process. If the voting experts find significant fraud, No Stolen Elections will start by calling for protest, including non-violent civil disobedience.

How else can the people stop their election from being stolen from them?
