Cost of recount in NH - $55,600 - deadline tomorrow

According to the official letter that Albert Howard signed, the cost is $55,600 for the recount of approximately 240,000 ballots.
The Secretary of State must receive the money in the form of a certified check by 3 PM tomorrow January the 15th.

Go to http://grannywarrior.chipin.com/recount to donate. We need a major effort of all to raise this money by the deadline.

Spread the word, blog about it, send e-mails , get on the phone, do everything you can to make this happen.

When we have come this far, don't leave us hanging...

I trust you do your best.

Albert Howard

Note: I did also direct someone to AH who claimed that the money was not a problem, so I am not sure what happened with that.

This is good

I have no problem with some OTHER GOP candidate asking for a recount. I would have a problem with RP asking for one. This is perfect.

What I worry about is that we haven't enough 'watchers' after hearing from Bev Harris of Black Box Voting tonight. I am trying to send her some helpers.

Dr.Paul has spoken. Why are we still trying to recount?

Is it that we all know better than Dr.Paul does? I think not. This reminds me of the blimp.

you are on my *suspicious* list - you WANT voter fraud??
stop it NOW...
LOOK at how the vote recount is coming in 5 to 10% miscounts?
and you want this to continue??
we are in the process of exposing it NOW...

Better start a new pool. I'm sure we're gonna have to do this again in some other state.

Granny Warriors unable to receive money?

From Paypal site after I tried to chip in:

This recipient is currently unable to receive money.

Anyone know why?

Just got that error...

as well. I'm not sure what is causing it.

1/15/08 article on NH vote recount: http://www.bradblog.com/?p=5560#more-5560

Looks to be done

No one contributed after 2pm. I know the deadline was 3pm for the money to be paid, so they probably stopped it at 2pm after they had the necessary funds.

One question

I have been a VERY strong supporter of Dr Paul for 8 months now both financially and getting his message out by canvasing, sign waving, marching in rallys etc so DON'T dare question my dedication to him.

I just have one question and I want intelligent answers. Dr Paul has already responded to the question of the recount so my question is what does the recount accomplish in getting Dr Paul elected as president with Super Tuesday just weeks away?

Specificaly ..

The recount will go some way towards establishing some level of trust towards the voting mechanisms that are in place.
Without that trust, people will feel more disinclined to register and vote.
Without participation, the status quo wins again.
This is how it helps Dr Paul specificaly.

Beyond that and to a more general sense, maintaining vigilance over the voting system is a must if WE ever hope to see substanitive change through the election process. Without vigililance all sorts of mischief are quite possible / I say possible and not likely ect because it is just that, possible ... but why is it that we allow ourselves to tolerate something that is even POSSIBLE.
I wont speculate further but you should be able to get my meaning ...

It's an issue of voter

It's an issue of voter machine errors. If it is shown that there is a significant difference between hand votes and machine votes (which has already been shown a few times), they need to ban these machines from further voting. So it's not as much as getting more votes for RP in NH as it is that Diebold machines should not be used at all in all of the primary elections. Hopefully this makes sense...

NH Voter Fraud

I agree, but it is taking time from being Precint Captains and getting out the vote. Spending time on here pissing and moaning will not get Dr. Paul elected. Give to Albert Howard, Give to the Campaign and talk to people face to face or write letters. A discrepancy in NH is important but focusing on that is playing into the trap they want us to - less time spreading the message of Freedom.

I disagree--why can't both be done?

Why can't both be done? There is ample resources for those who want to focus on NH to do so, and for others who want to focus on the upcoming primaries to do that.

Also, what's the point of trying to a candidate elected if the election mechanism has been sabotaged?

Yah I think that was my

Yah I think that was my point... I support RP with $$, educating my family, my friends, etc. I also think that the Diebold machines are a bad idea. My family is actually voting today in MI. My dad was a huge McCain supporter and a Vietnam vet.....until I had a few lengthy conversations with him. :)

There are a few reasons why I am supporting the recount

1. It will attempt to determine whether there was vote fraud.
2. Ron might place higher if he was in fact undercounted.
3.It will raise awareness of electronic voting machines and the need for paper ballots.

I don't have the money....

But I forgave my lunch money this week and pitched in another $25.... Please people....this needs to happen.

article on the recount

http://www.bradblog.com/?p=5560#more-5560

Great article about the recount

only 4500 left

only 4500 left of the 55.6 k. They need it now. According to ron paul war room they really need it by 2 pm eastern so they can meet the deadline.

30 minutes left, lets donate now!!!

I know that they are

I know that they aren't techies, but it would be nice to see the total in real time. When I donated over the weekend I noticed that the total never changed throughout the day.

Another frustration is that the most recent post at the top of the ChipIn page says, "This recount is going to happen". I'm guessing that this is meant to be inspirational, but when I first read it and combined it with the statement that they are having technical difficulties, I thought it meant that they've already raised the money and we don't need to give more.

Someone who can reach them might want to encourage them to remove that line and maybe post once an hour how much is needed to be raised. We are too close! Oh, and I think it sucks that the state of NH gave such a tight deadline for something so important.

$50

I just cleaned out my change jar and rounded up $50 to donate to a recount!

Why the recount is important

Even though Dr. Paul doesn't feel the recount is important (and I think it's great that he sees only good in people), the fact is that the problems that are in Michigan happened in New Hampshire and people did nothing, and the answer is to not just shrug our shoulders and say oh well.

What's wrong with having a verified count of the votes in America? What are people scared of?

What is the link to the current total?

Please post!

9/11 truthers don't be discouraged

If AJ supports him, I know he's the best chance to get the word out. Every other serious candidate out there would white-wash it. RP will learn the truth when he gets in and he'll crucify the perpetrators. I can't wait.

BEHIND THE SCENES-HE'S PROBABLY AWARE OF HOW HIS

PASSIONATE supporters feel and maybe he's treating this in the same way he is forced to treat the 9/11 issues. He CANNOT tell his grassroots supporters what to do or direct them in any way, BUT if they do uncover fraud in NH, I don't think RP would be too dissapointed!
One of the very important issues here also ties in with the National Clean Elections Lawsuit that has been filed in all 50 states by Bob Schulz of We the People. I understand that the Supreme Court is looking for reasons to hear the case; what BETTER evidence can we give them?
It is a FACT that the machines were breaking down and the security seals were broken DURING the election in NH and the technicians from LHS (Diebold) replaced memory cards and reconnected cables. That in and of itself REEKS of vote count fraud! How do WE KNOW what was on the memory cards, what cables, etc. were truly connected, disconnected, etc...makes ya wonder just a little doesn't it?
WE THE PEOPLE must begin at the local and state levels and DEMAND that our state ABOLISH ALL MACHINES and simply return to paper ballots counted by hand! It is the ONLY way we can be assured that our votes aren't stolen! Canada does this and the winners are announced within 24 hours. We in America have to get over this instant gratification when it comes to our votes. I know PLENTY of people who would volunteer to stay and count our votes, myself included of course. If we broke up the voting precincts into smaller groups of 20,000 in larger precincts, IT CAN BE DONE!!! Our Federal Government certainly WILL NOT do this!

Well, what if there is vote fraud?

Wouldn't that matter?

Also, wouldn't that be a great momentum booster if say he actually placed 3rd?

Except RP knows there was no fraud

Read RP's message:

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.

What if he is mistaken and it turns out there has been?

If you're implying that there was no vote fraud because Ron believes there wasn't...that's a logical fallacy.

FRAUD IS *CONFIRMED*

Need the last 11k

We are down to just 11k more for the 55k needed for the recount. Please donate we only have a few hours left!!

Half way there

I can't donate anymore ,I donated $100 earlier today and it feels great but it'll feel better when we get our total .

>>>>>TWO CHIP-IN'S?????

Why two chip-in calulators? One is on the front page and reads 62% of $65,000, 942 donors @ $40,408.11 AND this one that reads 43% of $25,000, 225 donors @ $10,960.76. Do we have it or not?????? Please someone explain!!!!!!

Adding up those two numbers...

40408.11+10960.75=51368.87

And since we need 55,600--we only need 4,231.13?

Glitch

The first chip-in had a problem, so needed to start a new one. The money for the first one was collected though. The balance was put on the second chip-in.

Just talked to GrannyWarriors

They're getting a little anxious , lets help 'em out .

What is the correct amount?

Last night as the original Chip-In expired it read $41,400. I then watched it rise to $4,000 within a few hours for a goal of $25k. Now the total contributions on the Chip-In meter is back to $40K showing a goal of $65K. Someone please contact these people and get a true accounting, I'm a diehard RP supporter, but I'm getting suspicious.

Ron Paul supporter in IL

Just wanted to let you all know...

Voted Ron Paul, and all of his supporting delegates in the Illinois Primary yesterday. Did my 'early voting' to avoid the long lines :)

The ballot was the big scan tron sheet that feeds into the machine that most likely saves the information. Anyone know if these are a problem? Or is it just the Diebold machines? I asked the election judge if I got a receipt...but she said no...hahaha *puts on tin hat*

OH, and I donated $10....saving the rest of my money for MLK day...

Go Ron!
