PROP 37: Count ALL the Votes!

To be delivered to Debra Bowen, California Secretary of State

Petition Statement

We petition Debra Bowen, Secretary of State of California, to require ALL votes cast in the November 6 election be counted immediately. We specifically demand that ALL ballots in the following counties be counted and recorded: Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, and Santa Clara. We demand that the results of this complete ballot counting be made public immediately.
There are currently 71,274 signatures. NEW goal - We need 75,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Jon Rappoport, investigative journalist, states that OVER A MILLION votes on Prop 37 (the GMO labelling initiative) in CA have gone uncounted to date. Since the margin of "victory" is about 600,000 votes, this means Prop 37 could actually have passed.

If we want to do something about this, NOW is the time. This petition seeks ACTION by the CA Secretary of State to count ALL the votes cast on Prop 37.

If you cast a vote on Prop 37, make sure it gets counted by signing this petition, requiring the CA Secretary of State to do her job.


A little background: On November 8, two days after the election, Jon Rappoport found that many votes in California remain uncounted. He decided to try and find out just how many, and contacted the Secretary of State of CA, responsible for elections in the state, who apparently doesn't know. He was informed that all counties in California have been asked, but not ordered, to report in those figures, but it is apparently voluntary.

So Rappoport decided to pick the largest counties and called their voter registrar offices and these are the results he obtained:

Santa Clara County: 180,000 votes remain uncounted.
Orange County: 241,336 votes remain uncounted.
San Diego County: 475,000 votes remain uncounted.
LA County: 782,658 votes remain uncounted.

In other words, in just those four counties, 1.6 million votes remain uncounted. It is still unknown how many other votes are uncounted in other Californian counties.


About Rappoport: Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, he has worked as an investigative reporter for 30 years, writing articles on politics, medicine, and health for CBS Healthwatch, LA Weekly, Spin Magazine, Stern, and other newspapers and magazines in the US and Europe. Rappoport has delivered lectures and seminars on global politics, health, logic and creative power to audiences around the world.
