Original post:

The Presidential Election is over. Though, you can still send a message to the nation that you want peace. On December 6th is a congressional election in New Orleans. And, Malik Rahim, an anti-Iraq War candidate, is running a 5-way race (which includes the incumbent Democrat who is facing corruption charges.) This is a winnable race. This is a way to use the lull in campaigning to focus the energy of progressives and greens together on winning a seat in Congress. For more information on Malik Rahim for Congress, go to his web-site: here. To donate to Malik Rahim for Congress, go to his contributor page: here.

Though, the people at the Board of Elections see them, volunteer poll watchers see them, party bureacrats and lawyers doing recounts and recanvasses see them. And, one time, at least, a green who voted for “Minnie the Cat” in NY saw her write-in vote mentioned in Newsday because a reporter did a story about write-in votes related to Giuliani and his desire for a third term.

  1. I was checking to see if any federal senate and congressional seats were open for vote this year and which ones. Also can you tell me where to find out how to do a write in vote? Is the the polling stations responsibility to supply the paper and pen(cil)? Is there an online site with this info. I coundn’t find one there.
    Thank you,

  2. Excellent questions. All the seats on the House of Representatives are up for re-election this year. 1/3 of the US Senate is up for re-election. None in NY. I know in NY that you write-in by sliding the slot at the top of the ballot and using the pencil on a string in the machine to write your candidate in. For NYC info you can go here: http://www.vote.nyc.ny.us/

    peace
