Call your local elections division or town clerk and ask if there is any procedure for placing non-binding resolutions on the local ballot.
If there is, contact NYC CAN and we will help you take steps to start a petition drive.
If there isnít, contact your local council members or county supervisors and ask if they would place a resolution on the ballot, or introduce a resolution to be voted on by the council. You may be surprised to find that council members DO support the cause. If they donít, it is still their JOB to be receptive to you.
They may ask you to collect a certain number of signatures before placing it on the ballot or introducing it to be voted on by the council. If so, contact NYC CAN and we will help you take steps to start a petition drive.
The key is reaching out to your elected officials and asking for their help.
Vote For Answers is a national campaign to place non-binding resolutions on local ballots across the country calling for a new 9/11 investigation, or to lobby local legislative bodies to pass resolutions on their own.
On March 6, 2007, Lincoln, Vermont became the first town in the United States to pass a resolution calling upon Congress to open a new 9/11 investigation. On March 9, 2010, Richmond, New Hampshire became the second such town, as part of the Vote For Answers New Hampshire campaign. While eight out of nine New Hampshire towns considering the resolution in March 2010 voted it down, tens of thousands of New Hampshire residents were educated about 9/11, and 25% of all voters voted in favor of a new investigation.
Why does putting a new investigation on the ballot make so much sense?
By ensuring local media coverage, having a resolution on the ballot generates public discussion that would otherwise be non-existent.
It also serves as a vehicle for public education. For years the pursuit of truth has used every possible venue to educate citizens about the falsity of the official account of September 11th. Why not go out with clipboard in hand and ask fellow citizens to sign a petition for a non-binding resolution to be placed on the local ballot?
Finally, passing a resolution does not have a binding effect, but itís an important political statement. In New Hamsphire, each member of the congressional delegation received a letter from the town of Richmond instructing them to pursue a new investigation. Nothing legitimizes a cause more than having a majority support it.
