NEW FEATURE! See your messages logged after submission

Should Congress contest the presidential election based on problems nationwide?
Why don't you tell Congress where you stand? Here, we'll make it easy for you. All you have to do is fill in one form now and with one click we will send your personal message to both of your senators, your house representative and the House Judiciary Committee too. We'll even look them up based on your address and tell you who they are. And at the same time we will format an invitation you can send to the email addresses of everyone else you know with just one additional easy click. Just a few simple words from you mean more than any form letter can. Please read the question carefully to make sure your vote matches your comments. There have been allegations of ballot counting fraud and a systematic pattern of vote suppression, leading to the call for a recount in the state of Ohio, though perhaps in other states as well such as New Mexico and Florida. Should Congress put election officials on notice now? If you think we should not complain and just get over it, vote "No", otherwise if you believe Congress should dispute the result as long as these questions are not resolved, then vote "Yes". Even if you don't think your particular representatives would agree with your position it is important for them to hear from you. If you need more information to make a decision, Click here for arguments.

This is an important section. Your members of Congress and the House Judiciary Committee want to know what you think. All comments should be appropriately respectful and in acceptable taste. The way to have maximum impact is by sending voting invitations to as many of your fellow constituents as possible and encourage them to make their voices heard also.

Mission Statement:
Our democracy is only as strong as the participation of the people. Do your representatives only hear from you once every two or four years, assuming you vote at all? There are members of Congress who publicly bemoan the fact that they don't hear from more of their constituents more often. Our leaders are our generals in the political arena, but we are their troops. They can't do battle for us against opposing interests without being able to demonstrate our ongoing support. The People's Email Network is constructed to facilitate communication with our elected officials. By your participation you can establish that you are a voter who will call your government to account at each successive election. Your views do count. They will be heard. And most importantly, when you cast your votes in the section above, be sure to use the ground-breaking input functions of our website to also submit the email addresses of everyone you know. In this way we can together mobilize the entire country to speak in the loudest possible voice.
