Recount? (1/12/08)

After a careful investigation, I have decided against seeking a recount in New Hampshire. I am confident that not asking for a recount is the right decision.

I carefully considered the arguments for and against a recount before instructing my campaign staff not to pursue it. Without a firm belief that vote fraud had taken place, and without the possibility that a recount would have increased the chances for success of our campaign, a recount would have diverted campaign resources, time, and energy away from crucial battles elsewhere.

We have taken concerns about vote fraud seriously. In Iowa, campaign volunteers carefully monitored the caucuses. Campaign staff placed Paul supporters in every precinct to watch and verify the voting and count. We had supporters phone in results from their precincts to a campaign hotline while others ensured that those numbers were reflected on the official display board at the Polk County Convention Center. The numbers our caucus watchers reported agreed with the official tally, and both results also aligned with the campaign’s internal polling. In relatively pro-Paul counties, our sampling pegged support at 11.5%. This is consistent with an overall 10% finish for the entire state.

In New Hampshire, while I would have hoped for a better result than eight percent, I am convinced that vote fraud played no role in this result. Rumors of vote fraud were investigated, and in the end they proved to be the result of errors in early media reports that were not reflected in the official numbers. In one notable case, when a campaign staff member contacted an individual who had on the evening of January 8 claimed that his vote had not been counted, the person said that he had made a mistake and that the next morning the error in reporting on a newspaper website had been corrected both in the media and -- most importantly -- in the official tally.

Many have expressed concerns that those ballots counted by machine yielded a 2% lower total than those counted by hand. However, machine counted vote totals were more than 2% lower for both John McCain and Mike Huckabee. Hand counted votes were more likely to be cast in rural areas. Results almost always vary between urban and rural areas.

My campaign staff and I have analyzed the numbers in New Hampshire and I have reached the conclusion that it was the high turnout -- not vote fraud or counting errors -- that left us with eight percent of the vote. Our total vote count of over 18,000 votes was well within what we projected given the efforts of our extensive statewide get-out-the-vote program, giving me no reason to believe that vote fraud played any role in the results of the Granite State’s primary.

In both Iowa and New Hampshire there is much to be proud of. Taking both states together, I am honored that over 30,000 people cast their vote for me -- more than either Rudy Giuliani or Fred Thompson. Unlike many other candidates’ efforts, our campaign for freedom is growing and our message is spreading.

Now is the time to redouble our efforts. Our resources must be spent on the upcoming primaries and caucuses, and on ensuring that, with your help, we organize every state yet to vote with our Precinct Leaders program.

We can't win primaries and caucuses that have already happened -- but we can win those yet to come. To become the Republican presidential nominee, a candidate must have 1,191 delegates. Iowa, Wyoming and New Hampshire determined only 32 delegates, so we have much opportunity remaining.

Today, I ask you to join me in focusing on the battles ahead as we continue our fight for liberty and our Constitution.

Sincerely,

Ron Paul

You Are Not Understanding

This is not a request for a recount. This is a request to verify our own votes in the upcoming primaries and caucuses so as to not need a recount. If their numbers don't match our numbers then they are caught red handed.

Part of the precinct leader program is to insure that our votes are truly represented in the final tally.

HELP PROTECT ALL RP VOTES BY VOTER AFFIRMATION AFFIDAVITS!

Available for Every State, not all states are posted yet, but they will be available to download, copy and pass out at all RP Meetups, at the polling places, etc. to ensure an accurate count. We are up against the "Black Boxes" counting our votes now, so this is CRITICAL!
Affidavits are SWORN statements of who you voted for notarized and will stand up in a court of law if and when it comes to a recount! The "establishment" will not know how many affidavits will be circulated, therefore, they will not know how to "FIX" the black box counting, If ever RP Meetup group distributed these at the meetings and the boots on the ground at the polling places handed these out, these will be more important than exit polls, this is indisputable LEGAL PROOF of your vote for RP!
They are available here:

"If virtue and knowledge are diffused among the People, they will never be enslaved. This will be their great security."
-Samuel Adams-

The above is not a lawyer

An "affidavit" will NOT stand up in a recount, sorry. You don't get to say "really, I voted for X" after the fact. That's just not how elections work, and for obvious reasons.

This Is A Blatant Misrepresentation

The affidavits are legal and binding. We will have notaries at the polling places or you can have them notarized and sent in to your precint leader.

They will have voters names on them unlike the diebold voting ballots.

If their numbers do not add up to our numbers then we will have a body of evidence to present to the world that something is rotten in Denmark..

This is setting precedent people.

Do not let people like slapshot dissuade you from protecting what is yours.

I'm all for accuracy, but the fact remains that it won't hold up

You can do anything you want as an unofficial ballot count. If you want to gather as many of these affidavits as you want as evidence for the public that the results are accurate or inaccurate then so be it.

The problem is that no court would let external evidence of a vote come into play. There is way too much of a chance of affidavit fraud for a court to overturn the official results with affidavits signed after the fact.

I wish it weren't so, but it JUST WON'T HAPPEN. You will be causing a distraction from the real campaign.

Do Not Trust That Your Vote Will Be Honestly Counted

Do Not Be Lazy About This People

We Must Have Legal Recourse If They Do What They Did In NH And IA.

Take the extra 5 minutes to fill out the affidavit so as to insure freedom will last in this country.

Just NH, not IA
