Petition to Judge W. Kendall Wynne, Jr.
We are starting this petition in support for Justin Camp a 13 year old African American male being charged as an adult in Walton County Superior Court in Monroe, GA. Justin has been charged with 7 felonies and faces 25 years to Life. Justin has been deemed incompetent and non-restorable 4 times meaning he does not understand the charges against him, he can not assist his attorney with his defense and he's too young to assist in his case. Justin currently has a public defender who is not fighting to get him due process or protection of his civil rights. His public defender has not explored options of rehabilitation versus incarceration. Justin has been incarcerated for over 2yrs. Justin is currently in Greenville, Ga. at a facility where they are training him on competency 4 hours daily in order for him to regain competency to go to trial for the alleged charges. Justin is a diabetic type 1 being deprived of snacks, phone calls, sometimes visitation from his parents. Justin was questioned without his mother's permission and his statement was used to create the 7 charges. We are needing support from family, friends, friends of family, friends of friends, the media, etc. to help get the word out about Justin's case. We need support and people to sign this petition in support to FREE JUSTIN! We're not claiming innocence or guilt but what we are saying is Justin should haveREHABILITATION V/S INCARCERATION!!
Petition to Indiana Election Commission
Indiana Voter Suppression - Election Commission Response Requested
In the 2016 general election, Lake County, IN had a smaller percentage of registered voters casting ballots than the rest of Indiana based on registered voters. Indiana’s voter turnout for the election was below the national average exacerbating Lake County’s under-representation. This does not take into account that since the election, nearly half a million registered voters in Indiana have been deleted from the roles of which over 28,000 are from Lake County. Due to the poor voter turnout in Indiana, we are asking you to respond to the questions below. 1) Based on the low voter turnout for Indiana and the even lower voter turnout for Lake County, what is the Commission’s plan to address concerns over consolidation of voter precincts in Lake County which would decrease access to polling locations for a substantial number of voters? 2) Has the Commission reviewed the analysis in “One Person, One Vote: Estimating the Prevalence of Double Voting in U.S. Presidential Elections” by Sharad Goel, Marc Meredith, Michael Morse, David Rothschild and Houshmand Shirani-Mehr? What is the Commission’s statement about the analysis? If the Commission does not agree with the analysis, can they provide equally reputable analysis for that opposition? 3) In combination with the data in question two and Indiana’s low voter turnout, has the data been reviewed showing that voter ID laws have little impact on an insignificant number of fraudulent votes and prevent a significant number of actual votes? https://www.aclu.org/other/oppose-voter-id-legislation-fact-sheet What is the Commission’s response to the fact sheet on the suppression created by voter id laws? If the recommendation is to continue with the current laws, can the Commission provide equally reputable analysis for the recommendation? 4) Has the Commission reviewed the results from DefCon where hackers were able to break into US voting machines in less than two hours? http://fortune.com/2017/07/31/%20defcon-hackers-us-voting-machines/ Based on these findings, does the Commission have a plan for the counties that do not currently have an auditable paper trail? If they do not have a plan to protect votes in Indiana, what reassurance can they give voters that the vote totals cannot be altered? Thank you for your time and attention to these critical issues affecting our votes.

Karen Handel Must Participate in 6 Debates with Jon Ossoff prior to 6th district election
Residents of the 6th district of Georgia deserve to be able to make an informed decision prior to casting their vote on June 20, 2017. Without sufficient public debates, this election will become a popularity contest rather than a democratic election. Karen Handel has rejected several public debates, and is attempting to vet the 3 confirmed debates in an effort to evade public scrutiny. Voters deserve to have answers to their questions and a clear understanding of the vision and plans of our officials prior to casting our vote in this critical election. Candidates shouldn't be allowed to cherry pick which debates they will attend based on their popularity in those regions. Karen Handel is running a campaign to represent the constituents of this district, and she must make an effort to participate in these debates where our diverse community is represented. Failure to do so will lead to inflated election results, based solely on party affiliation rather than an informed populous casting their vote for the best candidate to represent their interests & community in Congress.

Petition to Eric H Holder
End gerrymandering and create independent state commissions
End the practice of gerrymandering. Redrawing districts should be to ensure more competitive elections and improve voter participation, not to be a tool to keep one party in the majority. Establishing independent commissions to redraw congressional districts will facilitate more competitive elections and improve voter participation. These commissions should also be responsible for establishing strategies for maximum participation in elections and prevent any form of voter suppression, intimidation or manipulation of voter participation. Citizens and voters in the United States of America need to take a stand and hold congressional representatives accountable to the people who put them in office. These congressional representatives need to represent the people and reframe from advancing their own personal agendas and the agendas of special interest groups. It is imperative to initiative ballot initiatives immediately if voters and citizens of the United States of American want to have competitive elections to improve voter participation in future elections.
