Democracy for America (formerly Dean for America)
Democratic party organizations, national, state, local
Candidate organizations
Any newspapers and other media that counted the vote in FL 2000
Mother Jones
EFF

We should draft a press release explaining the immediate problem,
the statistical studies being done, and the idea of a phone
survey, with a note about our proposed long-term solution. Then
we should see if any of the organizations listed above would be
interested in putting it on the wire in some form. EFF put out a
press release at my suggestion about Santa Clara county telling
poll workers not to offer paper ballots, which got me and them
on radio and in several newspapers and Web sites.
