Help The Recount

If you can believe it, I haven't really had much time for news lately besides checking the blog headlines. My newspapers for the past week are in an unsightly stack by the front door, and that's the very least of the things I've let slip lately. The reason would probably bore you, but I feel guilty about overlooking an important local issue: Paying for the recount in the governor's race.

The last news I heard about it, the money to pay for the recount was well in hand. As it turns out, not so much.

But Howard Dean's Blog for America has been watching Washington closely, and they've asked their supporters to chip in to the state party to cover the costs of a full hand recount. One that would have happened automatically if the first machine count had matched the second.

The deadline is Thursday. Tomorrow as of the time of this post, today as of the time you're probably first reading it. Please contribute to the WA State Democratic Party today if you can, so we can count every vote.

If you're looking for ways to refute GOP arguments that the results of a hand recount would be illegitimate, take a look at the statistical analysis of voting system accuracy discussed in "Heads or tails… why we’ll never know who really won the governor’s race."

Congratulations! Not only will every vote be counted, but you got Chris Vance to shriek like a little girl for the evening news. :)

See the yard-sign which we have created about the recount (and other voting-rights issues):

I'd especially like to get some over to Eastern WA dems in the next few days.
