32. Organization is essential and must happen quickly...
....several groups/individuals are amassing incident reports, by State, and others are doing studies/analyses, like TIA's, but, without coordination we will fail the challenge -- we must force a "Halt and Audit" of THIS National Election.

Reform of practice can come later, but if we don't force a "Halt and Audit" the effort at reform will face even more obstruction than it has since 2000. In other words, we've done that experiment - (default to a selected Pres in 2000 and have folk with an agenda that is anything but supportive of our Constitutional rights obstruct legislation, expand and enhance their skills at 'systemic disenfranchisement).

Thus, those individuals reading this thread who have access to the executives at the ACLU, the AFL-CIO, the Rainbow Coalition, Common Cause, etc -- we need a group of those executives to form a National Task Force to Save the Franchise and they need to bring all their resources to support a centralized repository of incident reports but, even more importantly, coordinate demands for investigations of every 'central tabulating center' and EVEN MORE importantly, broadcast the call for "Prove My Vote Counts, Now," many, many, many times every day, through all media -- full page ads in major papers, 30 sec slots on all major cable and radio/tv, etc.

All I can do is think and type and send dozens of letters per day and I'm doing that, but without our fellow citizens calling "Halt and Audit" we will see an even more concerted effort to render our Constitutional franchise extinct in the next 2-4 years.
