Will you be heard?


There is no greater right in our land than our right to vote and thus shape the priorities and direction of our country. On November 7, 2006 Americans will have another opportunity to choose our policymakers. In the light of much evidence and allegations of miscounted votes, voter roll tampering, partisan redistricting, electronic voting machines, and manipulation of voter rights, there has never been a more urgent time for citizens to be informed and to make every vote count!.


Want good government? Well, You get what you don't vote for! 

Join Us for this important non-partisan free event.

To realize a government by the people, for the people we must insure not only that every vote counts but also recognize that every election counts. We have the power to create a government that reflects and addresses the concerns and priorities of the greatest majority of it's citizens. To do this we must also insist that our vote remains our voice, in every elected office in our land.
