Protesting the vote

The Daily Olympian carries this story of what appears to be a nationwide groundswell of protests over irregularities in the presidential election. Among the 30 or so who were in the Olympia event were Shawn Newman, attorney and iconoclast extraordinare, and Green Party activist Chris Stegman.

This past October the LP of Washington pointed to certification problems for software in 6 Washington counties when suing to put Ruth Bennett and J Mills back on the general election ballot. The national LP is now participating in a recount in Ohio, as reported here, also alleging irregularities.

This voting integrity issue is not going away, and may get bigger as time goes by. The LP would do well to stay ahead of the curve, making sure that its candidates and other activists are fully informed.
