FOR VOTERS RIGHTS
AND TO SUPPORT VENANGO COUNTY ELECTION BOARD
Day Event Draws Multipartisan Participation, Supportive Honks
July 4, 2011 -- Citizens from
at least different three political parties united today in a
rally for voters' rights in front of the beautiful Venango County
Courthouse in Franklin, PA.
The Independence Day event
was in support of the courageous Venango County Election Board,
which has been facing stiff opposition from local politicians
and media as they plan to conduct a forensic examination of the
county's paperless iVotronic touchscreen voting machines in the
wake of problems reported during the May Primary.
The rally was organized by
Vernon Etzel of Oil City, and the Libertarian Party of Venango
County. Over the course of the two-hour event nearly two dozen
people participated. Holiday traffic on Franklin's Liberty Street
was heavy in front of the Courthouse, and the rally drew numerous
supportive honks and thumbs up signs from passersby.
Signs at the rally:

UPDATE, July 11 -- Although
Venango County's major newspaper The Derrick sent a reporter
to the rally, no coverage of the event at all appeared in print
during the entire following calendar week.
