Kerry Promises Every Vote Will Count

Sunday July 25, 2004 11:01 PM

By NEDRA PICKLER

Associated Press Writer

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - John Kerry said Sunday that a team of lawyers is looking at ``each and every district'' where there have been voting problems to try to prevent a repeat of the 2000 election disputes.

Kerry said he put the legal team in place as soon as he secured the Democratic presidential nomination in March. He said he also has thousands of lawyers around the country prepared to monitor the polls on election day.

``We're looking at each and every district where there have been problems,'' he told a voter who asked Kerry how he would make sure every vote is counted this November. ``We may or may not be bringing challenges publicly in the course of the next weeks.''

As an example, Kerry said his team found that in Florida, people are being purged from the voter files if they don't respond to a letter to stay on it.

2. He'd also better be ready
at district without 2000 voting problems. Legitimate voting is the keystone to democracy. Any and all who tamper with this right is a terrorist.

6. But only if they are 'counted.'
That's a promise no one can make because of the charletons out there.

8. You can also play a part in fair elections
by working at the polls. Each polling place usually has an equal number of Democrats and Republicans working on election day. In Ohio you can call your county Board of Elections to sign up. I am sure there is a similar system for most states. You will be trained in procedures by the Board of Electionsand receive a small payment for your services. Also you can volunteer to be a poll watcher for the Democratic Party. In either case you will have a front seat for the Election Day action. I have been a poll worker for years and I think this year will be something like I have never seen before!
