50. I snail-mailed today......
lifted info from post by darkworkz and sent letters to the other 3 reccommended in that post!
Dear Chairman Sensenbrenner,
It is with regret I feel the need to write you, and voice my concern regarding the Ohio Election Results. While the 2004 election has concluded, the doubts about our election systems loom large concerning any future contest. Just a few of the well-documented irregularities from the state of Ohio include
1. Unusually long lines in heavily democratic areas
2. Tabulating Irregularities
3. Voting Machine Malfunctions
4. Over-votes (statistically impossible)
5. Spoiled Ballots
6. Improper handling of provisional ballots.
And....these are but a few of the well-documented issues that continue to erode all confidence in our electoral process throughout our country, but particularly in Ohio. As the chairman of the Committee on the Judiciary I am sure you will agree, this critical matter needs to be resolved before any future election occurs.
It is to this end, that I encourage you to hold the full committee hearings that Representative Conyers has requested, and restore some integrity to the idea of the consent of the governed. Please, do not under-estimate the necessity of a deliberate and thorough investigation, in order for any meaningful remedy to repair this vital thread to our democracy. Thank You for all you do.
