Format: Paperback
Fitrakis's book should be required reading, especially for those that would prefer to have the next election be fair and honest. The problems in 2000 were not a result of incompetence, instead were created by those who successfully controlled the outcome. Fitrakis's book shows how the level of deceit, corruption, and control was escalated in 2004. Because of the silence of the media, we are faced with ever increasing levels of fraud and manipulation in upcoming elections. But this book sheds light on a very dark place. We will never recover the democractic form of government (that has been lost) until we reestablish honest elections. Nothing could be more important.

(It is not necessary to read all of the backup documents, the essence of the book is covered in 318 pages.

Fitrakis, a lawyer, knows very well that even in the simplest court case, expert witnesses have to disclose to the court and to the other side the data they use and the methods of analysis they adopt. Even a radar technician in a speeding case will have to disclose the calibration, workings, and methods of a radar gun in a simple speeding case, if they are at issue. Same with the breathalyzer and any other courtroom analysis, due process requires that examination and disclosure.

But in elections and especially in Ohio, the data (ballots) and the methods of analysis (trade secret corporate software) are not disclosed at all. Should any party out of power trust this arrangement? Where are and what happened to the checks and balances?

Of course, Fitrakis still doesn't have all the election data or all the methods. But there's a boatload of citizen documents in this collection to help you decide for yourself what really went on in Ohio 2004.

Without Fitrakis' book, there's no rational basis for confidence in the Ohio election or our elections generally wherever the data and methods are kept secret (only blind faith can get you that confidence). With Fitrakis's book, you'll have a rational basis and a lot of evidence showing affirmatively the inaccuracy and fraud and suppression of the vote in Ohio. My only quibble with Fitrakis is the implicit idea that he has to prove something, when the burden is on those who are keeping things secret and who are also, by the way, paid to administer elections in many cases. We should remember, as one judge put it in 2002, that democracies die behind closed doors.

But, in the absence of such a realization that secrecy is totally inappropriate in democratic elections, this book's information and its significant size will both help prop up and re-open the door to free and fair elections in Ohio and around the country.

Format: Paperback
This collection is a must-have for any author, researcher or concerned citizen interested in studying the volume of evidence strongly suggesting fraud in the 2004 Ohio election. The first 300 pages lays out the framework through a series of essays on how a well-devised multi-pronged plan of attack was implemented; the last 400 pages comprise the Appendix - those essential documents of record from pleadings, affidavits, official letters and statistical analyses, to a complete reprint of John Conyers' (D-MI) "Preserving Democracy: What Went Wrong in Ohio."

Books like these help Americans realize the inappropriate presence of machines in democratic elections, although it's far from the first. VoteScam: The Stealing of America by the Collier brothers (1992) and Black Box Voting: Ballot Tampering in the 21st Century by Bev Harris (2004) are two excellent resources for a more detailed understanding of how easy it is to tamper with election results when machines or computers are involved. "Essential Documents" goes one step further by detailing the tactics involved in vote suppression, voter intimidation, and public record obfuscation. When read together, no doubt remains about this or previous elections.

It looks as though the some people would rather spend time labeling Bob Fitrakis a loony instead of looking at the facts. This book is based on facts that happened here in Ohio. I was there and I saw the crap that that was being pulled on the public. This is the way it happened in Ohio, and calling him a loony isn't going to change the facts!!

If you really want to know what happened here in Ohio, then read this.

This book is well researched and provides a wealth of information on how the 2004 presidential election was stolen in Ohio and elsewhere. For those who have doubts this is a comprehensive study of where and how the election results were manipulated for a bush "win". I also like the fact that it includes Rep John Conyers, the Democratic Chair of the House Judiciary's report on "Went went wrong in Ohio". I encourage those with even the slightest doubt to read this book. The evidence is so voluminous it will convert even the skeptic.

I was there and know that this book is based on facts. How could these things have possibly happened. In Ohio, the local election boards are made up of two democrats and two republicans, any disputes among the 4 board members that ended up tied were settled by the Secretary of State, Ken Blackwell [a republican and chairman of Bush's re-election campaign in Ohio] Therefore, the republicans on the local boards called all the shots and dictated the allocation of experienced workers and working voting machines.

I worked the polls on election day as a witness and watched a democratic leaning precinct and a republican leaning precinct vote side by side in Medina County, Ohio. The republican line moved like an express line with experienced poll workers and plenty of voting machines. There was seldom a line of more than 10 people, and the poll workers had long stretches of no voters in line.

The democratic line, on the other hand, moved at 1/2 the rate with inexperienced workers and fewer working machines. The democratic line had as many as 80 people waiting most of the day, with an hour to 2 hour wait common. Once the chief poll worker [a republican working his first election in that position] of the demcratic precinct stopped the line completely for over 30 minutes so they could catch up on their paper work. I spent a good part of my day at the back of the line encouraging people to stay in line. Many people left the line in frustration. We had at least 12 'lost' voters that were incorrectly directed to the democratic precinct, one had visited 3 different polling places and had spent over 4 hours trying find the right place to vote.

Funny thing is that the vote totals for these two precincts were nearly the same at the end of the day.
