Voting reform advocates: come out to explain to Democrats (including our Pierce County Auditor) why voting machines are bad news!
Attention, all Pierce County Democrats, Greens, Libertarians, and anyone else who cares about the integrity of our voting process:
Pierce County Auditor will be speaking to the monthly meeting of the 27th District Democrats, Monday June 26th at 7 PM, in the meeting room of the Downtown Public Library, on Tacoma Avenue South in Tacoma.
Please come armed with the recent Rolling Stone article and any other literature that can explain to the Democrats, and McCarthy if she'll listen, why they should reject these machines and demand a return to hand-counted paper ballots. Paper trails are not enough! These machines can be used to steal votes and do all kinds of shady things, and the auditor has refused to accept until now that they are insecure. I would encourage everyone who knows anything about this to bring everything they've got to this meeting and make their voices heard!
For all the information you're going to need, check out these resources:
Blackboxvoting.org - latest news and the entire text of Bev Harris's book.
Votersunite.org - a great organization with an awesome, easily printable factsheet on these issues, available here.
One more thing you can do: pass on this information to everyone you know, including Ed Schultz, Thom Hartmann, Frank Blair (of Equal Time), and any other talk show hosts that have shows in the Northwest. Also, send this information to other activists, reporters and local politicians. If we can fill this room with a host of people oopposed to electronic voting machines, perhaps we can save our county's citizens from that most terrible fate, an insecure democracy.
Democracy needs our help! Get active now!
