is what anyone, who wants to help us gather the body of evidence that
will move the country towards restoring honest elections, should do this
election day. Your participation will especially help push forward our
Networkusa/Precinct Project Institute/Cincinnatus "grand plan"
to get contacts in all 3075 counties AND to get the info categorized on
the internet as to WHAT is happening in each county
(vote-counting-wise), replete with updates on who's blocking the
implementation of an honest vote tabulating system, or who's trying to
put one in. (Linda Muller
set of instructions below was first written a month or so ago to a
teacher named Denise who had written to our Networkusa domain site.)
Let Board of
Elections Officials Know the USTP is WATCHING them
URGENT ADDITION: Call your Board of Elections and all the Board of
Elections in your surrounding counties, and ask them if an observer from
USTP and the Howard Philips for President Campaign can come and watch
the vote count. They'll probably tell you that, yes, you can show up and
stand in the hall like everyone else until they come out and post the
computer results. But -- Even
if no one shows up from our USTP team on election night, this will cause
the election officials in that county to be more likely to not
"lose" the votes Howard does get. I for one do NOT believe
Howard only got 42,000 votes in 1992. I believe that many of his votes
were "lost" or ignored. There was a BIG protest vote in 1992
(not nearly as big as this year, though, of course). I, for one, voted
for Bo Gritz in 1992 because Howard was not on the ballot in Ohio. I did
it just because I wouldn't vote for Clinton or Bush.
the Board of Elections officials in your county know that we either are
watching them, or we might come around to check up on them later. They
will be more likely to register Howard's votes carefully – and that
could add up towards the 1 million we're looking for. Do it politely and
as a friendly concerned citizen who wants to see a fair election. It
Wrote, A Timely Inquiry
is what a teacher named Denise wrote to our NetworkAmerica site a month
or two ago:
Hello.... you wondered if I could check on our county's voting system.
How/where/what do I do and who/where/what do I call?
Just for the record, I'm a public schoolteacher and I vote Republican!
There are lots of us Republican schoolteachers, you just never
hear about us in the media.

Thanks for writing. You probably should start by calling the
Board of Elections or the Elections supervisor in your county.
the NAME of the system your county is using and
WHO is the supplier/manufacturer. Also, tell us exactly
how YOU vote when you go into vote so we can make it clear to others
outside your county what people in your county DO when they vote. After
this is obtained, ask your county commissioner (or the equivalent)
Find out who decides what voting system is used to count votes in your
Also, if you could find out the name of the Secretary of State or
whichever state official it is who approves the voting methods in each
Next, find out if your state provides in its state laws for the county
to choose paper ballots, if it wishes.
Finally, try to find a team, perhaps led by you or someone you know, to
take a video camera to a precinct in your county to find out what
happens to the ballots at closing time.
About Ballots At Closing Time
are some KEY questions:
Are the doors closed and the people closed out - - only to have the
ballots whisked away shortly thereafter to be counted behind police
guard at a central computer location?
Are the machines opened and a little computer print out comes out of the
machine at each polling place?
Are the ballots counted by hand in front of everyone?
Are the votes run through an optical scanning device, which then shoots
out a computer generated report?
If the ballots are NOT counted at the local precinct, how long does it
take to get it down to the central counting center? Follow the votes
downtown and keep the camera running at critical times.
Let the Columbo or the Jim Rockford in you Emerge NOW
us a verbal report on camera at the end. You will be doing the kind of
real, exciting investigative reporting that the Ruling Elite press will
NOT do anymore. This is real detective work. You must think like
Columbo, Jim Rockford, and Sherlock Holmes rolled into one -- to look at
each step of the process with an eye as to how it falls short of the
"hand counting of paper ballot" method.********
Principles of a FAIR BALLOT COUNT
recall the key elements that guarantee as far as possible a fair count:
a) easily read paper ballots put in clear plastic boxes which are kept
in plain public view all day; b) ballots counted by neighbors at the
precinct right as the polls close, with all factions welcome to observe,
as well as just plain citizens in the precinct; c) results posted
immediately at each polling place BEFORE the votes leave the precinct.
This process makes the central rigging of an election impossible,
provided competing factions gather the results in each precinct and then
check them against what the officials at the Board of Elections post.
in mind these first principles, please, and compare what you observe and
verify against these principles.
Be Prudent --
Don't Work Alone
not do this investigative reporting work alone. Have at least one other
witness -- several others working with you if possible. The video camera
does a lot to get you respect (sometimes NERVOUS respect), but often you
will find people who think they're doing their patriot duty, but have
never thought about the "holes" in the system they are
administering. These people may be puzzled by your presence. Don't fall
for the "are you questioning my integrity" line. No, we are
not, we just want to know -- as citizens -- how our votes are being
counted! (Anyone who pretends to be offended that you are
"questioning his integrity" is someone who I usually begin to
the people running the precinct what you are doing -- documenting how
the votes are counted for a national education program -- , so that they
have no reason to be suspicious of you. (Incidentally, this is no joke.
Our educational foundation is called St. Philomena Foundation and the
votefraud investigation part is called "Cincinnatus Education
Project. We already have this investigation well underway. Remember, we
have film of the exit poll conducted during the New Hampshire primary at
a high school outside Manchester, etc., etc., etc. The information you
gather WILL become part of this national education program and the
results will be made available to all as fast as we get them and can
collate the information.)
the people running the precinct get hostile when you want to film or
when you ask questions - - just record all that on film. If they ask you
not to film, tell them that's the whole reason you're there. Say,
"There's nothing to hide is there? We just want the public to know
how votes are counted. Tell them his information gathering is going on
all over the country. Tell them you are working in conjunction with me,
or the Cincinnatus Education Project, if you wish.
Extra Fun -- IF you're county uses the IBM Punch card Method
you are in one of the MANY counties that uses the IBM punchcard system,
ask them where you can go to film the workers using tweezers or styluses
to punch out the "chad" that certain voters supposedly failed
to punch through all the way. In Cincinnati and Miami, since we have
them on videotape tweezing and punching ballots at the Board of
Elections on the night of the election long after the polls are closed,
the officials have maintained for years that this "ballot
cleaning" is absolutely necessary. The New American magazine
reports in October that Cincinnati's (Hamilton County's) former
Elections Director Elvira Radford insists that "ballot
cleaning" MUST be done if the IBM punchcard system is to work. I
know Elvira Radford, and she has always maintained this. We maintain
that there are NOT thousands of ballots that have half punched holes in
them when the ballots leave the precinct. In either case, if you find a
county that uses the IBM punchcard system where the officials claim they
are NOT "ballot cleaning" -- that's NEWS. If they say they are
"ballot cleaning" -- tell them you want to film it. (Keep your
camera rolling, even if its pointed at the floor, to get their responses
on tape.) If you do get it to film it (why shouldn't a citizen be
allowed to do so?) then notice where the "chad" is being
plucked from -- the middle or the edges? This is important, but too long
to go into here.
The Exit Poll:
Are There Any In Your County?
if you can find out if ANY exit polls by Voter News Service are taken
anywhere in your county. Put out the word to your county contacts to
report if there is even ONE exit poll done ANYWHERE in your area. Film
the exit poll, especially during the last hour or two when it's really
busy. The "exit poll" bluff is, I believe, a total hoax (i.e. they
DON'T get their projections from these people who are taking
questionnaires, I am asserting) and it is about to fall apart. I predict
that soon VNS will claim they have permission to go in and count the
ballots at key precincts so they can get the actual vote in key
precincts before they call in. They may even claim they have special
permission to count the votes an hour before closing time and that this
is "good enough". Incidentally, to give you more confidence on
how bogus this whole "projections" game seems to be, --
remember that the networks claim that they go to "key
precincts" which are "bellweathers." Well, they might
have been able to get away with this 70 years ago, but how can they get
away with it now when 1 out of 3 Americans is MOVING every 3 years????
Become Part of
the Historical Record
a copy of your videotape, and send one to:
Citizen for a Fair Vote Count, PO Box 11339, Cincinnati, Ohio 45211,
Keep one yourself, of course. And if you can send us a written
explanation of what happened, that would be very helpful.
feel free to give us a verbal report at the end of the videotape, as
well as a brief written summary of what happened in general, or
something that happened in particular. Don't pre-judge what you have on
film. It may be hard to believe that you are really doing important
investigative work; you may not feel that good that day; you may have a
cold; but BELIEVE that what you are doing is important (it is). You may
be surprised what you capture on film.
Done This in Cincinnati, Ohio
let me give you the answers from my city to give you an idea of the
"finished product" we are looking for in each county.
instance, in Cincinnati:
we are using the IBM punchcard system
provided originally by C.E.S. in California, now bought out by B.R.C./Cronus.
We vote by going into the booth taking a needle and punching holes into
the IBM computer punchcard provided. We slip the IBM punchcard in a book
attached to the voting booth which provides the candidate names.
The Board of Elections (made up usually of two top Democrats and two top
Republicans, plus the Elections supervisor) make the decision of what
vote counting system is used in this county. The Board of Elections
Supervisor is appointed by the County Commissioners, who are in turn
elected (?) by the people. Our Elections Supervisor is now Bruce Taylor.
Our County Commissioners are: Guy Guckenberger; John Dowlin; Bob
Robert Taft, Ohio's Secretary of State, approves the vote counting
methods proposed by each County Supervisor.
In Ohio, each county is guaranteed by State Law the right to use paper
ballots if they wish, and the state code specifies how this is to be
done. So clearly, in Ohio, it would be impossible for the Secretary of
State to LEGALLY block the use of paper ballots if the county officials
When we took a video camera in 1985 to one of the precincts in Hamilton
County, Ohio on election night as the polls closed, and filmed what was
happening, we found that the doors closed as the polls closed, and the
people are closed out; then the ballots are whisked away shortly
thereafter to be counted behind police guard at a central computer
location. It takes about one hour to one hour and a half to get the
votes from the local precinct down to the central computer voting
center. It was in 1985 and Ken and Jim Collier came in at my request and
caught the "ballot tweezing" on videotape.
In 10 years, we have found only ONE exit poll in the Cincinnati area. At
that exit poll the VNS representative stayed from noon to 5 PM, missing
both of the rush periods. None of the local stations will tell us where
they are, if they know. We suspect there are probably very, very few
exit polls, and that the information gathered has nothing to do with
what (I believe) are the totally manufactured "projections"
announced by the four Big TV networks shortly after the polls closed.
problem is that the party and public officials from bottom to top in the
Republican and Democratic parties are so corrupt that most of them
should probably be indicted and tried for obstructing the public's right
to vote, if not for treason itself. But the first step in this process
is to gather from each county the answer to the above eight questions.
Then it will be clear how pervasive are unverifiable elections, and how
calculated has been the attempt on the part of those directing the
pathetic and despicable Secretaries of State in each of the 50 states -
- to destroy freedom in the United States by setting up elections that
can be rigged from a Central Locations in each county (these centralized
locations perhaps responsive in one way or another to a few other HIGHLY
centralized locations. Paper ballots counted by neighbors in each
precinct, before the votes leave that precinct, and which are then
posted at the precinct before the votes leave the precinct, make
centrally riggable elections impossible.
we can make a national compilation, please mail all results Citizens for
a Fair Vote Count., PO BOX 11339, Cincinnati, Ohio 45211. Or . . . call

again for writing, Denise, because you have helped me to finally write
down these instructions for everyone across the country. Our goal is to
put the results gathered up on the internet at www.networkamerica.org
in a format of county by county and state by state. In each county we
hope to list the relevant information on vote-counting methods, who can
make the decision to restore honest elections in each county, and much,
much more. If you check in on your county and there’s no information,
then we need your help in gathering it! All the best . . .
