Defending Elections With Your Contributions

Please scroll down for donation links, addresses, and information.

In this 2008 presidential election year, EDA has invested more than 90 percent of donations received in the major expense of conducting exit polls and voter telephone surveys on election day.

We operate primarily on volunteer labor and have a very low overhead, but very few funds remain after paying for the expensive polling operations.

There are many post-election investigations and possible legal actions and publicity expenses for which we ask your financial assistance so we can continue pushing for electoral reform not just during election season, but all the time.

EDA is a sponsored project of International Humanities Center, a 501 c3 organization, so your EDA donations
are fully tax-deductible.

Please consider setting up a monthly sustaining donation in any amount that you can comfortably afford ($5, $10, $20 per month, etc.) and receive EDA message media (buttons, stickers, books, DVDs) as our thank-you for your support.

Reclaiming transparency and public accountability in elections, and legitimacy to government, requires full-time, year-round, long-term commitment and the assembly of a broad, coordinated campaign on many simultaneous fronts.
Here is an overview of our long-term Campaign to Reclaim Electoral Democracy

The research, communication, and organizing work of the EDA volunteer staff cannot be sustained without the support of you, the voting public. Click this link to see what Your Contributions at Various Levels can enable us to do.

Book Order: "Was the 2004 Presidential Election Stolen?"

Book cover - Was the 2004 Presidential Election Stolen?Was the 2004 Presidential Election Stolen?

Exit Polls, Election Fraud, and the Official Count

by Steven F. Freeman and Joel Bleifuss Foreword by U.S. Representative John Conyers, Jr. Publication Date: June 30th, 2006 | Seven Stories Press Paperback | 284 pages | $17.95 |

“Freeman and Bleifuss document the final proof of the most monumental theft in American history.”
 —ROBERT F. KENNEDY JR., Rolling Stone Magazine

"Freeman and Bleifuss shape the raw data into an image of all that the Founders warned us against."
—U.S. Representative JOHN CONYERS, JR. from the Foreword

Was the 2004 Presidential Election Stolen? is the first sustained investigation of what really happened on the first Tuesday of November 2004. Scrutinizing the widest spectrum of facts and theories that have emerged to explain the discrepancy between the exit poll results and the official count, the story that authors Steve Freeman and Joel Bleifuss have to tell is a damning one—one that has profound implications for the 2006 and 2008 elections, indeed for the future of American democracy.
