An Open Letter to Those Who Want Our Votes
Right now, our votes are counted on computers, and no one knows whether they are counted accurately.  There are a lot of people who believe that the secret computer vote counts have been manipulated, and there is abundant evidence to support those beliefs. 
According to a Zogby poll from August of 2006, 92% of people are concerned about counting votes in secret, and in Project Vote Count’s exit poll efforts in three states, 65% of voters were willing to sign affidavits testifying to how they voted after they learned that their votes were counted in secret. Yes, most people are very concerned about allowing our votes to be counted in secret. (I’ve attached the report on the Zogby poll since it is currently not available online.)
Most people quickly realize that computers count in secret, hidden from public oversight, inside their cases, just like the programmer or hacker told them to count.   
Most importantly, secret vote counting is both unpopular and unconstitutional! Taking a stand to restore our Constitutional right to make sure that our votes are counted would be very popular!
Counting votes in secret is prohibited by at least three U.S. Supreme Court decisions and the constitutions of at least seven (7) states!
The U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly held that the right to vote includes the right to make sure that your vote is counted. See the citations to these U.S. Supreme Court decisions in my article Virginia’s Elections Are UNCONSTITUTIONAL?!?! at
The constitutions of the following states prohibit counting votes in secret:
South Carolina
Article II, Section I of the Constitution of the State of South Carolina states, “Elections to be by secret ballot; protection of right of suffrage. All elections by the people shall be by secret ballot, but the ballots shall not be counted in secret. The right of suffrage, as regulated in this Constitution, shall be protected by laws regulating elections and prohibiting, under adequate penalties, all undue influence from power, bribery, tumult, or improper conduct.” (Emphasis added.) See http://www.scstatehouse.gov/scconstitution/a02.htm
The pertinent part of Article II, Section 3, Paragraph 2 of the Constitution of the State of Virginia states, “Secrecy in casting votes shall be maintained, except as provision may be made for assistance to handicapped voters, but the ballot box or voting machine shall be kept in public view and shall not be opened, nor the ballots canvassed nor the votes counted, in secret.” (Emphasis added.) See http://legis.state.va.us/laws/search/constitution.htm#2S3
The constitutions of the following states require votes to be counted in public:
Article XI, Section 2 of the Constitution of the State of Louisiana states, “In all elections by the people, voting shall be by secret ballot. The legislature shall provide a method for absentee voting. Proxy voting is prohibited. Ballots shall be counted publicly and preserved inviolate as provided by law until any election contests have been settled. In all elections by persons in a representative capacity, voting shall be viva-voce.” (Emphasis added.) See http://senate.legis.state.la.us/documents/constitution/Article11.htm
Article III, Section 9 and Article 4, Section 4 of the Constitution of the State of Connecticut require the votes to be counted in open meeting. See http://www.cslib.org/constitutionalamends/constitution.htm
New Hampshire
Part II, Article 32 of the Constitution of the State of New Hampshire requires the ballots to be counted in open meetings. See http://www.nh.gov/constitution/senate.html
Also, New Hampshire Statute § 659:63 states, “Counting to be Public. – The counting of votes shall be public and conducted within the guardrail and shall not be adjourned nor postponed until it shall have been completed. No ballot shall be placed within 4 feet of the guardrail during the counting of votes.” (Emphasis added.) See http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/rsa/html/LXIII/659/659-63.htm
The pertinent part of Article IV, Section 5 of the Constitution of the State of Maine states, “the election officials of the various towns and cities shall preside impartially at such meetings, receive the votes of all the qualified electors, sort, count and declare them in open meeting….” (Emphasis added.) See http://maine.gov/legis/const/
Chapter I, Section II, Article II and Chapter II, Section I, Article III of the Constitution of the State of Massachusetts require the ballots to be counted in open town meetings. See http://www.malegislature.gov/Laws/Constitution#cp21s20.htm and http://www.malegislature.gov/Laws/Constitution#cp22s00.htm
The foregoing research was performed by me and Nancy Tobi, the founder of Democracy for New Hampshire, http://www.democracyfornewhampshire.com/ Nancy has led an effort to restore Constitutional public vote counting in New Hampshire which has been very popular. See the town meeting voting for public vote counts at http://youtu.be/WXOg3OZfGpw
Please note that neither Nancy nor I have read the constitution of every state, so more may prohibit counting votes in secret.
For information explaining how computers count votes in secret, see Project Vote Count’s FAQ at http://www.projectvotecount.com/faq.aspx
For information about the high level of interest which voters had in participating in exit polls to help make sure that the secret vote counts were accurate, see Project Vote Count’s Election News at http://www.projectvotecount.com/ElectionNews.aspx
Addressing this fundamental Constitutional violation could lead a large percentage of voters to support your campaign and put you in a position to help restore a Constitutional government.
Thank you for your consideration, your efforts to restore a Constitutional government of, by and for the people, and your effort to make sure that the votes which are cast for you are counted for you as your supporters intended.  If you are interested in more information or in assistance with this issue, please contact me.

    I hope that everyone reads this very important article from Mark Adams. It is well researched and every Patriot needs to understand that Voter Fraud is very common here in America, and not just during the previous election cycle.

    The crooks who run South Carolina have changed the link to South Carolina’s Constitution again. The new link to Article II, Section I is http://www.scstatehouse.gov/scconstitution/a02.php

    Article II, Section 1, of South Carolina’s Constitution states, “the ballots shall not be counted in secret.”

    If you want to know how a government which was designed to be one of, by and for the people was turned into a corporatist government of, by and for the puppets who serve their bankster, warmonger, and multi-national corporate masters, see my short speech at http://markadams.blip.tv/file/2636803/ and then see the facts at http://ning.it/arAjdo

    If you take a look, you’ll learn why those in power and those who can improperly influence them get away with violating our rights, abusing their power, and committing horrible crimes. My article on torture includes a link to the U.S. Supreme Court case which explains how one of our stolen rights makes the difference between justice and injustice, between freedom and slavery.

      The two referenced links, “short speech” and “see the facts” have been taken down.

    The link to my article Virginia’s Elections Are UNCONSTITUTIONAL?!?! has been tampered with, but you can see it at http://tiny.cc/nltvnw
