Election Integrity Verification Project

Posted by kelliasworld on October 26, 2008

Dear Friends of Election Integrity,

With over 95% of U.S. votes counted by machines that use secret software
(such that no human being can know after an election what instructions the
machines actually executed), and with no scientific, independent
post-election manual audits in any state, and with no public oversight
over ballot security in most states – there is no reason to trust in the
accuracy of U.S. election results. Even the detailed methodology and data
of the media pollsters is usually kept secret from the public.

Please help our country by volunteering to help with this citizen exit
poll project (See below). It may be the only way to detect
suspicious-looking vote patterns caused by vote miscount that could
wrongly alter the outcomes of our November 4th election.

The vulnerability of US voting systems to mass scale fraud has been well
documented, but little has been done to establish meaningful checks. Bad
as the last few elections have been, coming elections – including this one
– could be worse. “Improvements” such as early and mail-voting

and purging of voting roles

continue to undermine election integrity and a wide variety of vote suppression

portends poorly for what we may see on November 4.

One of the few ways to detect mass scale fraud under such conditions is an
Election Verification Exit Poll

Such polls have been used around the world to ensure election integrity
and have been used to overturn fraudulent national elections.

On November 4, Election Integrity is engaged in a two-part exit polling effort:

(1) Our 3rd professional poll to determine and document whether official
numbers reflect how people say they have cast their ballots, to
investigate any discrepancies and to establish exit polling as a meaningful
verification technique (see our May primary pilot project).

(2) a Citizens Exit Poll with the Election Defense Alliance

* extend our ability to ascertain the veracity of official reported voting

* detect specific indications of election fraud, which can be further

* develop citizen polling as a means to detect and deter fraud; and

* to give citizens the tools to take control of their elections and their

You can volunteer.

To properly prosecute these efforts, we need your help.

I realized a long time ago that the idea of self-government based on
pushing a button for one name or another every few years was inevitably a
fantasy. In the end, self-government, or for that matter, good-government
demands citizen involvement and oversight. So, please, volunteer

or donate.

Democracy depends on it.
