For Immediate Release, 10/28/07: 

Remembering Nov. 2, 2004: A Funeral for Democracy 

The Ohio Election Justice Campaign (OEJC) is holding a funeral for 
the 2004 elections in Ohio on Friday, November 2, 2007, in Columbus, 
Ohio. This is the third anniversary of an election so flawed that for 
the first time in U.S. history, an entire state's Electoral College 
votes were challenged in the counting and certifying of a 
presidential election. 

The funeral will begin with a eulogy at 11:30 am in front of the Ohio 
Statehouse in Columbus, Ohio, at the McKinley statute, followed by a 
noon funeral procession past the Franklin County Board of Elections 
and the Offices of the Ohio Secretary of State and the Ohio Attorney 

A memorial service honoring the 2004 voters will be held from 5 p.m. 
to 7:30 p.m. at the First Unitarian Universalist Church, 93 W. 
Weisheimer Road, Columbus. Mourners of the election are invited to a 
wake for democracy with speakers and music at Victorian's Midnight 
Café, 251 W. 5th Avenue (at Neil), Columbus, from 7 p.m. to 11:00 

The OEJC is a coalition of concerned citizens from across Ohio and 
election experts in Ohio and around the nation, including election 
reformers currently serving on the Ohio Secretary of State's "Voting 
Rights Institute." Organizations supporting the OEJC include the 
Black Leadership Forum, Progressive Democrats of America, the Ohio 
Green Party, and the Election Defense Alliance. 

The OEJC seeks to raise citizen awareness of election justice issues 
through education and to encourage elected officials to restore the 
rule of law to Ohio. 

The OEJC calls for an immediate response to the allegations of 
election fraud and electoral irregularities in Ohio in 2004 and 2006. 
These issues have only become more urgent with the passage of time 
and upcoming presidential election.
