Citizens' Commission to Counter Carter-Baker - Voter Voices Documented!
The Election Assessment Hearing and project grew out of the call last Spring for a citizens' commission to counter Carter-Baker. A hearing was held in Houston TX on June 29, where hours of compelling testimony was heard, accompanied by hundreds of pages of written submissions. In these statements and documents, voters of many political leanings expressed concern with our electoral process and how it can and must be improved.
With the release of this Preliminary Report of Findings, Election Assessment hopes to permanently record and preserve the voices of these voters in a way that the Carter-Baker Commission did not.
Please spread the word about this, "kick" it, and forward the following press release which contains a link to the EAH Preliminary Report of Findings online.

Thursday, September 22 marks the release of a Preliminary Report
of Findings by the Election Assessment project. The 54-page
report documents the wide-ranging concerns expressed by voters in
testimony and submissions received at the public Election
Assessment Hearing convened on June 29, 2005 in Houston, Texas.
Testimony and analysis presented at the Houston hearing
represented voters of at least five major and minor political
parties, and described numerous problems and irregularities in
the conduct of the American electoral processes.
The Election Assessment project seeks to foster the use of
established professional methods for the effective improvement of
election processes by administrators, policymakers, standards
bodies, advisors and other voting stewards and participants.
Ongoing goals of the project include capture of the voice of the
customers of the electoral process (the voters) and addressing
the measurement of the process, the analysis of root causes for
defects, and the controlled implementation of improvements.
The Election Assessment Hearing Preliminary Report is available online at
