Help Needed for Nov 4 Election Verification Exit Poll

With over 95% of U.S. votes counted by machines that use secret
software (such that no human being can know after an election what
instructions the machines actually executed), and with no scientific,
independent post-election manual audits in any state, and with no
public oversight over ballot security in most states - there is no
reason to trust in the accuracy of U.S. election results. Even the
detailed methodology and data of the media pollsters is usually kept
secret from the public.

Please help our country by volunteering to help with this citizen exit
poll project (See below). It may be the only way to detect
suspicious-looking vote patterns caused by vote miscount that could
wrongly alter the outcomes of our November 2nd election.

Subject: Help Needed for Nov 4 Election Verification Exit Poll


The vulnerability of US voting systems to mass scale fraud has been well
documented, but little has been done to establish meaningful checks. Bad
as the last few elections have been, coming elections - including this
one - could be worse. "Improvements" such as early and mail-voting

and purging of voting roles

continue to undermine election integrity and a wide variety of vote

portends poorly for what we may see on November 4.

One of the few ways to detect mass scale fraud under such conditions
is an Election Verification Exit Poll

Such polls have been used around the world to ensure election integrity
and have been used to overturn fraudulent national elections

On November 4, EI is engaged in a two-part exit polling effort:

(1) Our 3rd professional poll to determine and document whether official
numbers reflect how people say they have cast their ballots, to
investigate any discrepancies and to establish exit polling as a
meaningful verification technique (see our May primary pilot project).

(2) a Citizens Exit Poll with the Election Defense Alliance


* extend our ability to ascertain the veracity of official reported
voting results;

* detect specific indications of election fraud, which can be further

* develop citizen polling as a means to detect and deter fraud; and

* to give citizens the tools to take control of their elections and
their government. volunteer button

The Election Verification Exit Poll project

To properly prosecute these efforts, we need your help

I realized a long time ago that the idea of self-government based on
pushing a button for one name or another every few years was inevitably
a fantasy. In the end, self-government, or for that matter,
good-government demands citizen involvement and oversight. So, please,

or donate

Democracy depends on it.
