Does anyone want to help w/ "How To ensure accurate vote counts" docs?

Does anyone want to help us review, edit, contribute to, these urgently
needed documents (listed here) prior to our releasing them?

1. What Voters Can Look for and Report to Local Officials and Election
Integrity Groups (& What else voters can do during elections.)

2. How Political Parties Can Ensure Vote Count Accuracy (2 versions: short &
long versions)

3. For Candidates: How to Assure that Votes in Your Race are Counted

4. A press release for all of the above

I am very sorry we didn't get these docs out until after most of the primary
elections, but I've been buried in personal stuff and Utah stuff - good
things are happening in Utah finally - the biggest Utah newspaper has taken
an editorial position in favor of our position against Diebold & our Lt.
Governor's position; the Utah League of Women voters has decided to host a
forum on "voting system security"; and my own county commission seems to be
leaning towards conducting independent audits of our vote counts regardless
of state laws which do not seem to allow it.

Maybe now, with all the Lou Dobbs, Rolling Stones, Newsweek, NY Times,
Washington Post, etc coverage of the vulnerability of our voting systems,
the public reception of some "How-to" ensure that correctly-elected
candidates are sworn into office would be well-received.

If any election integrity groups want to add tidbits to any of these docs
that are particular to a particular state, let people in that state know to
contact them, that would be great. I would very much appreciate it.
Some of the information already comes from Arthur Keller, BlackBoxvoting,
VerifiedVoting, and VoteTrustUSA and such.

Please call me if I can add you into the document management system that
lets you download, check out, edit, and upload the documents - so that you
can collaborate on this and we can get them out SOON before all the primary
elections are over.

My phone number is 435-658-4657 & call back again if you don't get me as I'm
miserable about picking up my voice mail messages.


Best Regards,
