Badnarik Challenges Election Results
Blackwell Announces Conference
We have just received wonderful news, and I want to share it
with you as soon as possible.
Multiple citizen activist groups have joined together to
protest the management of this year's election. Just yesterday,
Michael Badnarik and David Cobb issued a challenge to the Ohio
Secretary of State Ken Blackwell. This challenge was headline news
on Ohio public radio and the Columbus Dispatch.

No one thinks this will change the outcome of the election, but
we are, instead, focusing on the inherent unfairness of our current
election laws in Ohio. We have received scattered reports of
intimidation, fraud, and official counting errors. In one precinct,
Michael Badnarik's name was actually blacked out by election
workers. Many voters stood in lines for hours.
We are demanding change. We want votes to be counted promptly
and fairly in a transparent and easily accountable system. We want
to end the restriction of only allowing Democrats and Republicans to
work the polls (independents can not be poll workers in Ohio). We
demand that the Libertarian Party be recognized for what it truly
is, a political party. We demand equal and fair ballot access
requirements for all political parties and independents.
If you are an Ohio Voter, we encourage you to attend the public
meetings which has been called for this weekend: Saturday November
13, 1-4 PM
New Faith Baptist Church, 955 Oak Street, Columbus, Ohio 43205 and
Monday November 15, 6-9 PM, Auditorium (Meeting Room A), Courthouse,
373 S. High St.
Under this tremendous pressure from citizen activists,
Secretary of State Ken Blackwell has announced a Post-Election
Conference on Election Law to recommend necessary changes to the
legislature. This conference is scheduled for January.
We urgently need your help to continue the pressure. His phone
614-466-2585 and his email is: election@...
We are asking that you politely, yet firmly, demand that the
Libertarian Party be given a seat at Ken Blackwell's Post-Election
Conference. If you can help us by making a financial contribution,
the funds will be well spent. This is our contribution link:
With your help, we will continue to fight for all our rights.
