As many of you know, a hearing is scheduled in federal court in Philadelphia before Judge Diamond. The purpose is to persuade the Court that the Pennsylvania election system violates the U.S. Constitution.
After the nightmare of our collective experience in the Pennsylvania system--the unfair election code, the boards of elections, the Department of State--this will be the Stein campaign lawyers' opportunity to describe how bad this system really is, and hopefully to make sure Pennsylvania voters never have to go through this horrific experience in future elections, just to make sure their votes counted.
Join us in this historic moment -- come to the courthouse to show your support for the PA recount!
WHAT: Federal Court Hearing for Preliminary Injunction
WHEN: Starts at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, December 9, 2016 (please plan to arrive early)
WHERE: Courtroom 6-B, 6th floor, James A. Byrne United States, Courthouse, 601 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106.
INSTRUCTIONS: Please arrive early and prepare to walk through a metal detector before entering the courthouse. Show solidarity by wearing Green (to show Green Party membership/support) or Purple (non-partisan support).
PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a rally. We encourage everyone to come and show that they care about democracy, but remember to respect the court and its rules.
We encourage people to attend: voters, volunteers, county captains, recount observers, everyone. This is a public proceeding. Our side will be given only one hour to make our case. It will be an uphill battle. But it is important for the Court in a case like this to know that voters showed up and that they care about their democracy.
I also encourage anyone involved in this effort to read our brief here. It summarizes the absurd election regime here, and the impossibility of seeking recounts and meaningful relief in the state system. You know this, because you lived it.
Thank you for an amazing group recount effort, the likes of which has never been seen in the history of Pennsylvania.
