Thank you, Humboldt County!!
Jill Stein won 6.12% of our votes, more than three times the vote in California and almost five times that nationwide! As always in the Green Party, the campaign does not end on election day.
Goal #1 is the follow-up on the recount, which has faced every form of interference and evidence of corruption imaginable. To get up-to-date facts, go directly to jillstein.nationbuilder.com/recount. Follow the events live with Jill Stein and David Cobb on facebook.
Goal #2, concurrent with the recount and ongoing for as long as it takes to succeed, is to reform our entire election system and create a real democracy. That means abolishing the Electoral College and counting only the popular vote. It means banning the use of electronic voting machines and using only verifiable paper ballots nationwide and instant recounting systems such as the Transparency Project we have here in Humboldt County. It means opening the state and national debates and implementing ranked choice voting. It means taking the money out of politics and replacing private and corporate donations with equitable public campaign financing.
A voting system that is fair, accurate, and reliable is essential if we are to have a functinal democracy. jill2016.com/voting_justice_americans_need_real_democracy.
