Recall Sam Reed, Washington State Secretary of State sign now

We, Washington State registered voters, contend that Sam Reed has committed misfeasance or malfeasance in office, and/or has violated his oath of office and that these acts generally took place between January 1, 2003 and January 1, 2005. The charges are set forth below.

CHARGE 1

King County alone counted approximately 1,800 more votes than the number of people who actually voted. Mr. Reed was aware of this discrepancy before the certification date.

CHARGE 2

After election day (11/2/04) King County "discovered" additional ballots 9 different times (as of 01/10/2005); Mr. Reed was aware of this anomaly before the certification date.

CHARGE 3

In King County Poll workers admitted they fed at least 348 provisional ballots directly into counting machines, commingling them with legal ballots and circumventing the process of keeping them out of the count until they were canvassed and proven to be legal. Mr. Reed was aware of this violation before the date of certification.

CHARGE 4

Elections workers "enhanced" more than 55,000 ballots, and contrary to state law, they permanently obscured the original marks on many, preventing a review of their decisions; Mr. Reed was aware of this violation before the date of certification.

CHARGE 5

There are at least 557 names in the January 7, 2004 King County Voter Data Base for people who voted on Nov. 2,2004 but who weren't listed in the November 1, 2004 King County Voter Data Base. Only 94 of the 557 names are in the December 29, 2004 King County Voter Data Base. 280 of the 557 are shown to have registered on dates between June 7, 2004 and Oct. 2, 2004, yet their names did not appear in any of the earlier versions of the King County voter databases. Mr. Reed was aware of this serious discrepancy before the certification date.

CHARGE 6

Seattle's Precinct 1823 counted 343 ballots, which is 71 more ballots than the 272 voters who cast them. This is the single largest discrepancy between ballots and voters in all of King County. Nearly all of the discrepancy is due to "provisional ballots". Mr. Reed was aware of this serious inconsistency before the date of certification.

CHARGE 7

In violation of WAC 434-262-080, WAC 434-262-090 and WAC 434-262-100, Mr. Reed accepted, as complete, the abstract of votes from 24 counties even though they did not provide all the material required by statute and regulations.

CHARGE 8

Reed violated RCW 29A.04.610 by failing to perform many of the duties detailed therein, including;

A) Failure to examine and test voting systems for certification;
B) Failure to employ standards and procedures to ensure the accurate tabulation and canvassing of ballots;
C) Failure to ensure consistency among the counties of the state in the preparation of ballots, the operation of vote tallying systems, and the canvassing of primaries and elections;
D) Failure to ensure procedures to receive and distribute voter registration applications by mail;
E) Failure to engage in the testing, approval, and certification of voting systems;
F) Failure to enforce standards and procedures to prevent fraud and to facilitate the accurate processing and canvassing of absentee ballots and mail ballots;
G) Failure to enforce uniformity among the counties of the state in the conduct of absentee voting and mail ballot elections;
H) Failure to implement standards and procedures to accommodate out-of-state voters, overseas voters, and service voters;
I) Failure to enforce procedures for conducting a statutory recount;

CHARGE 9

Failure to withhold certification of the third, final and manual recount of the November 2, 2004 election, an election he knew was wrought with violations of election laws and regulations.

ACTS OF MALFEASANCE, MISFEASANCE AND/OR VIOLATION OF THE SECRETARY OF STATES OATH OF OFFICE

The above acts of malfeasance, misfeasance and/or violation of the Secretary of States Oath of Office, as defined in RCW29A.56.110 (1), (a), (b), (2), occurred between November 3, 2003 and January 5,2005, and constituted a failure to perform the Secretary of States duties as detailed in RCW 29A.04.610 and in violation of RCW 42.20.100, RCW 42.20.040, RCW 42.20.050 and RCW 9A.80.010.

In spite of his personal knowledge of election law violations, violations of election statutes and regulations and his failure to employ said laws and regulations, Sam Reed certified the third and manual recount of the November 2, 2004 Washington State General Election.

A duty to uphold and employ election laws and regulations is enjoined upon the Secretary of State, his willful neglect to perform this duty and his certification of an election that he knew was wrought with election law violations, was an act of malfeasance, misfeasance and/or violation of the Secretary of States Oath of Office, and violated the public trust.
