Kerry/Edwards Campaign Participates Ohio Recount Ohio Democratic Party Seeks Volunteers to Help Recount.
COLUMBUS – Assuring Ohioans receive an accurate count of all votes cast for president has prompted the Democratic Party to participate in the initiative to recount the results of the Nov. 2 presidential election.
“As Senator Kerry stated in his concession speech in Boston, we do not necessarily expect the results of the election to change, however, we believe it necessary to make sure everyone's vote is counted fairly and accurately,” said Dennis White, Ohio Democratic Party chair.
Columbus Attorney Donald McTigue will lead the recount effort on behalf of Ohio Democrats. The party will be recruiting volunteer witnesses to assist in the recount process in all 88 counties.
On Election Day and throughout the month of November, angry Ohio citizens have expressed frustration with long lines, malfunctioning voting machines and undelivered absentee ballots. There have been inconsistencies in the unofficial reports of the election, including an error in one Franklin County precinct that gave George Bush 3,893 more votes than actually cast for him.
The recount can begin after the official results are certified, which likely will be in the first week of December. The Democratic Party wants to be fully prepared to begin a recount immediately.
Volunteers can sign up at the Ohio Democratic Party website: www.ohiodems.org and the party will also accept contributions to help offset the cost of completing a recount.
“We are proud to stand up for Democrats all over the world who have asked us to make sure every vote gets counted. And we want to demonstrate that Ohio can do better in the future to guarantee every voters who wants to vote, has a chance to vote,” White said.
This is what John Edwards promised in the wee hours of Wendsday morning Nov 3 that every vote would be counted........
I have been maintaining since Kerrys consesession speech that somthing was not right after all look at the imbalance of votes casted compared to voters registerd at that precient, has any of the repubs asked for a clarification of any voters vote??????....NO!!!!
I am holding out HOPE that it will be John Kerry saying SO HELP MEA Middle East Airlines (Lebanon)">ME GOD on inauguration day........so far with what has gone on since Nov 2nd in the White House has been pathetic.
Sorry its been a While since Ive Posted a header topic but Ive been busy looking for new/better employement.

First of all, it was some 3rd. party that first initiated the idea of a Ohio recount. John Kerry conceded and gave all of his money left over from his campaign to the Democratic Party.
Senator Kerry hasn't made any official statement about this possible Ohio recount.
At the same time, it would be foolish for Kerry/Edwards to stop a recount too.
With machines automaticly giving votes to Bush, undelivered absentee ballots, other machine errors and a close margin of victory for Bush, a recount could certainly show who really won Ohio (Kerry or Bush).

They should recount all the votes.
How on earth did Bush get 6000+ votes in a county in OH when there were only 4000 voters? This whole election (and the last) were a fraud. The thing about no paper trails is just that, Bush can do whatever he wants and steal the election. I'm convinced Kerry won OH this time and Gore won FL last time.

Actually he held onto 15 Million and caught hell from his fellow Demmers because of it.

There are always inconsistencies in elections, but to say Bush stole OH and as a result the election is ignorance. You are aware that the voting machine of choice in OH was overwhelmingly the "punch-card" variety. I wonder too if you were so concerned when registration fraud was running rampant in OH...

While most Kerry fans have already experienced and completed the grieving cycle (denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and lastly acceptance) over the election, it would appear that are still some that can't advance past the denial stage.

Not a single member here has defended the actions of this 3rd. party that's put the funds up for this recount.
Not a single Kerry supporter at this site including myself has jumped on any recount bandwagon or ready to point fingers at Bush for fraud.
