Ginny, Although I 100% agree with you, it "aint gonna happen" due to
the complexity of doing separate calculations for each election race,
and I'd rather do something to ensure that we don't get a wrongly
elected US president and other US officials sworn in in January 2009.
Here is an email announcement which I urge you to forward to all your
lists now. Thank you very much. Kathy

URGENT NEWS: I heard today from a reliable source that Holt is NOT
seriously considering any tiered election audit plan (nor, I presume,
is Holt considering any requirement for minimum audit amounts) in his
new election integrity legislation.

If we want to ensure the integrity of our great American democracy
that so many people have fought and died for, and ensure the future
well-being of humanity, then we must all contact US House
representatives NOW to demand a tiered election audit and minimum
audit amounts for any range of margins between candidates.

A requirement for a minimum AMOUNT of vote counts to be manually
audited for particular margins between candidates, would result in
100% hand counts of 100% of vote counts whenever that is necessary to
ensure election outcome integrity, AND a minimum audit amount would
prevent election officials from subverting audits by aggregating
ballots into a smaller number of larger-size vote counts which to
cause any percentage-based audits to be ineffective; and allow open
season for outcome-altering vote fraud to continue.

Please show this newly revised version of "Tiered Election Audit" to
our US legislators:

PLEASE take action and also ask your friends to take action.

Demand NOW (today) that the US House requires tiered election audits
and a minimum audit amount for all federal elections, in order to
secure the integrity of US elections and ensure the future well-being
of all peoples on our planet.
