Action Alert 2: Count My Vote Rally and Press Conference - Madison
Backrgound:
A month after 161,000 people donated an average of $50 to pay for the recounts, with 10,000 volunteering to observe, 3656 in Wisconsin alone, the Stein2016 Campaign and WI Green Party have been analyzing the Board of Canvasser reports that have come in as well as the Recount Observer reports. We have found some disturbing things. Machine insecurity, inconstant practices, and the large number of vote changes all point to a system that is broken. This doesn't even take into account all the ballots that were not hand counted, thus making it impossible to audit the vote in those counties, the largest being Milwaukee County.
Take Action: On Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017 at 4pm on the steps of the State Capitol, the WI Green Party and Dr. Jill Stein will present our report with its findings and recommendations at a Rally/Press Conference and launch our Count My Vote Campaign.
