      ACTION NOTICE: No Stolen Elections!
      To: news@...

      First Action Notice:

      1. GET READY
      4. UPDATES

      As the election closes in there is mounting evidence that the outcome
      may not be immediately clear. A wide range of voter fraud may emerge
      that will require intense work at the local level to organize direct
      actions to seek remedies. Fortunately there are already thousands of
      people mobilized in existing election protection efforts to insure
      that every vote is counted on November 2nd, but they will need more
      support. That's why 15,000 people have already signed the No Stolen
      Elections pledge. If there is election fraud, we are committed to
      take action to ensure that every vote is counted in the days
      following November 2nd.

      Late on election night, November 2nd, you and everyone else who
      signed the pledge will receive an Urgent Response Network email
      notice informing you of whether the Fair Elections Advisory Council
      has found evidence of significant fraud impacting the outcome of the
      election. This notice will also appearon the website. In the
      meantime, the No Stolen Elections campaign is well underway, and our
      website is constantly being updated to provide you with information,
      suggestions, contacts, and other resources to help you follow up on
      your pledge to defend voting rights.

      Here is what you can do right now:

      1. GET READY

      Prepare Your Local Response - Go to the website and click
      on "Directory of Local Actions," and see if someone in your community
      has already organized a rally, public meeting, or other event for
      November 3rd, and beyond. If so, please contact them and help them
      out. If not, please take steps to organize such an event, and please
      post the details about it on the website. Click on "What You Can Do"
      for tips and suggestions for your local organizing, and for a PDF
      poster you can download for local use.

      Read Up - Go to the website and click on "Stolen Election Deja
      Vu" to read an excellent article by Steve Cobble which details the
      kinds of abuses the Fair Elections Advisory Council will be looking
      out for on November 2nd. Click on "Action Framework" to read a
      document which will provide you with an overall guide regarding how
      to prepare for November 3rd, and for what may happen in the weeks and
      months following a stolen election.

      Get Text Messaging - One way we'll get the word out on November
      2nd will be via text messaging. Please sign up to receive the word
      via your cell phone. Simply: (1) Go to http://www.txtmob.com, (2)
      Create an account (click on login), (3) Click on Join More Groups,
      and (4) Select NOV3.

      2. SPREAD THE WORD - Tell everyone about it! Go to the website and
      click on "Spread the Word." Use the form that is there to send out a
      letter to everyone you know asking them to join you in signing the
      pledge. On that same "Spread the Word" page there is also a banner
      at the bottom. Click on that to see an array of banners and buttons
      you can add to your website as links to the No Stolen Elections

      3. CONTRIBUTE - Go to the website and click on "Contribute!" to make
      a contribution to the No Stolen Elections campaign. For the
      timebeing, the costs of coordinating this campaign are limited to
      field support, web, communications costs. But we expect that if
      Urgent Response Network is mobilized, costs will increase
      significantly. We need to be prepared. Please contribute today.

      4. UPDATES - Watch the website for regular updates. Recent updates
      have included the Fair Elections Advisory Council, No Stolen
      Elections Deja Vu, What You Can Do, the Action Framework, new
      signatories to the pledge, links to election protection groups on
      the "About Us" page, and many other lesser updates. Look for at
      least one more email update before election day.

      "This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and
      it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power
      concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.
      Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have
      found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be
      imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted
      with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are
      prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." ~ Frederick
      Douglass, 1857
