Contact A Progressive Senator to Contest the Electoral College Vote Count
On January 6, 2005, Congress will certify the November 2, 2004 election Electoral College vote count, unless at least one Representative and one Senator contests the election. Several Representatives stand ready to do this.
Only one senator is needed now. Please encourage Democratic Senator Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia -- currently the most outspoken critic of Bush administration policies in the U.S. Senate -- to stand against U.S. election fraud and contest certification of the Electoral College vote count. Email Senator Byrd at: http://byrd.senate.gov/byrd_email.html Or, phone Senator Byrd at: 202-224-3954, or fax: 202-228-0002
Then, call/email the following Senators and urge them to do the same before 5 p.m. Eastern time on Wed. Jan. 5:
Senator Barbara Boxer, (202) 224-3553, http://boxer.senate.gov/contact/webform.cfm

Protest The Electoral College Vote Count
"We ARE going to Washington on Thursday for a 1 day trip to protest the certification of the vote. We only need 1 Senator to refuse to certify and begin the discussion of legitimate elections in this country! Please show your support and join us. Details below. You can contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or 412-680-1626. Thanks and hope you can join us!
Summons Your Patriotic Outrage:
Come to Washington to Defend Democracy
It continues with: Demand Democracy, Support the Challenge
As you know, congress (with the likes of our Senators Spector & Santorum) will vote on January 6 to accept the electorial votes. Groups are now organizing to mobilize on the 6th in Washington. People from across the country are being encouraged to come to Washington for a vigil and rally starting at noon to demonstrate their support for congressional leaders to reject the electorial votes sent from Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, Indiana, and any other states in which massive fraud and vote supression inflated Bush totals & dimished Kerry's.
Many of us did nothing to protest the results in 2000. We can't stand idly by and watch these "irregularities" rob Kerry of his victory. We have to demand an honest and transparent vote for president if nothing else. And as the website ReDefeatBush.com points out as part of the justification for this rally, we want to get the message to congress that we're watching. This rally could be over in an hour as our elected officials rubber stamp the electorial counts, but it COULD be the most exciting time in American politics for a century or so -or at least provide the cover for some in congress to vote against accepting the counts, unlike 2000 when no one voted no in the senate.
For those of you interested in making the trek, we will be leaving from the Monroeville turnpike interchange at approximately 7:00 a.m. Now, we know that's early, but the rally begins at noon. If you want to go, let us know, so that we can plan cars/drivers. If you are interested in driving to D.C. & can fit some folks in your vehicle, let us know. We are planning to go down in caravan style, parking along the metro route & taking the subway into the city (we're brave enough to take on congress, but not D.C. traffic).
We want to make a stand against dishonest elections, can you join us?????? If so, please respond to this e-mail for more details. We will try to organize drivers & passengers. Hope to see ya on the 6th.
