Groups contesting that the President truly won the Ohio vote have asked the Ohio Supreme Court to review the election just hours before the Electoral College is to meet. The court can do several things: Not even take the case and keep the results as is, declare a new winner or throw the results out altogether. They can also force the Electoral College to hold off on their vote until further investigations can be made. Groups such as We Do Not Concede and others have been protesting the vote at the Ohio State House in Columbus.

A demonstration was held Sunday as about 100 people gathered outside the Ohio Statehouse to protest the delegation's vote.

Led by a coalition representing the Green and Libertarian parties, the dissidents are paying for recounts in each of Ohio's 88 counties that will begin this week. The recount is not expected to be complete until next week.

"John Kerry conceded so early in the process that it's maddening," said Kat L'Estrange of We Do Not Concede, an activist group born after the election that believes Kerry was the real winner in Ohio and nationally.

L'Estrange, Susan Truitt of the Columbus-based Citizens Alliance for Secure Elections, and others demanded that the electoral vote be put off until the recount is completed.

Jackson said the challengers noticed Bush generally received more votes in counties that use optical-scan voting machines and questioned whether the machines were calibrated to record votes for Bush.

The dissidents claim there were disparities in vote totals for Democrats, too few voting machines in Democrat-leaning precincts, organized campaigns directing voters to the wrong polling place and confusion over the counting of provisional ballots by voters whose names did not appear in the records at polling places.

If the court decides to hear the challenge, it can declare a new winner or throw out the results. The challengers said they also plan to ask the court to stop the Electoral College delegation's vote until their case can be decided.

We should know whether or not the Ohio Supreme Court will see this case and what the decision is soon as the Ohio Electoral College is to meet today. The irregularities in Ohio must be investigated.

Election Officials in Ohio and Florida Fail to Give Poll Access to International Election Observers

Diebold employed 5 convicted felons as senior managers and developers to help write the central compiler computer code that counted 50% of the votes in 30 states.

The matter-of-fact way things have been ushered about, particulalry in the media, is cause enough for concern. But, if you add us internet folk to the mix, and all the compelling reason why a full recount should be conducted, one has to wonder where this will all play out?
