Dear jamesm,
The election is upon us. More than 20% of Americans have already voted and Election Day is only four days away. True Vote’s report on the election so far shows lots of problems from registration through voting, but U.S. election integrity advocates are mobilized and the whole world is watching. Many organizations and individuals are working to ensure an election result that voters can trust.
This week I met with two international election observers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. OSCE’s Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights is engaged in an election observation mission in the United States in 40 states. True Vote provided them with a breadth of examples of election issues that they should be monitoring.
Yesterday, I went with two colleagues to seven embassies in Washington, DC to deliver a "Petition for International Observers for the U.S. Presidential Elections 2008." The petition was submitted by TrueVote.US,
No More Stolen Elections, the Economic Human Rights Project, Chesapeake Citizens and Global Exchange. Today, the petition is being delivered to the United Nations. We want to make sure that if the election results are contested steps have been taken so that the U.N. is able to participate in ensuring the integrity of the U.S. election. You can see a summary of the petition here, and the full petition here. Watch a video of our delivery of the petition in Washington, DC.
Our international actions are to let American officials know that the whole world is watching. Please sign the petition to support our call for international involvement in a disputed election. Click here to sign the petition.
TrueVote.US’s action alerts, joined in by the No More Stolen Elections Campaign, have let election administrators know that there are thousands of eyes watching, their actions will be monitored and reported on so that they can be held accountable. We hope to applaud a smoothly run honest election, but if not we will work for a 2008 election Americans can trust.
While there is more work to do to ensure the integrity of U.S. elections, in recent years Democracy advocates had an impact. This year, a majority of Americans will be voting with a paper record, a shrinking number are voting on touch screen machines and there is more flexibility in when people can vote. Early voting has already shown the need for more reform and True Vote will advocate for a democracy agenda in the next Congress.
Thank you for your support. When we have called on you to take action

Also, thanx for signing my petitions, et al, please consider sharing them. Also, since Admin. of change.org aren't allowing me to invite people to do my actions lately and are switching my urls for my petitions so when I invite people off their site they can't get to the petition either (ergo 3 possible urls for each petition), here's a few of my latest actions; do as few or as many as you'd like (there are 3 linx for each petition because admin. switches between the 3 of them so people trying to sign the petition can‘t get to it): This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Haiti disaster anniversary, please, do what you can: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9033 This petition on change.org: Haiti disaster anniversary: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2?share_id=yIpWHEHxri&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2 http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Green, Indigenous, Native American, etc., actions: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9026 This petition on change.org: Green, Indigenous, Native American, acts: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous_native_american_acts?share_id=NHvTtQadfP&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, holiday: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9024 This petition on change.org: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. M.L.
