Will Your Vote Count in the Next Election?

A growing concern over the inadequacies of election equipment in the United States has recently been heightened by the problems of the 2000 Presidential election. Added to the mix is the election reform mandated by recent federal legislation attempting to address the concerns. The result is that many states are scurrying to replace their older equipment with new electronic voting computers.

Unfortunately, election technology has not advanced to the point where it can provide us with electronic systems that are reliable enough to trust with our democracy. In other words, we just aren’t there yet.

Here are the facts:

  • Computer experts say today’s voting machines are prone to errors and vulnerable to fraud.
  • Defective hardware and bugs in software could decide who wins an election.
  • Even thorough testing can’t reveal malicious programs that could subvert an election.
  • Many election officials don't realize the risks inherent in using electronic voting machines.
  • Courts have ruled that secret software can be used to record and count our votes.
  • Manual recounts will be impossible in districts that don’t allow voters to inspect a paper record of their votes.

The letter described Pipes as “vilely xenophobic? and “echo[ing] messages directed against Jews in the past.? Signatories to the letter included Professor Emerita Bluma Goldstein, who lost over 30 members of her family in the Holocaust, but who nonetheless morally rejects nationalist Zionism. I was part of that protest.

The United States has repeatedly sponsored coups and uprisings in Haiti and in neighboring [democratic] Caribbean countries. ...With a violence-prone U.S. government operating with impunity in many parts of the world, only the public's perseverance in getting at the truth can save us, and others, from our own worst behavior.

They are stealing the primary

Hawaii and maine primary both mistakenly have boosted Kerry to the detriment of Dennis Kucinich.

In California, more people signed up for meetups then the numbers show as voting for Dennis Kucinich.

We do not have to accept Kerry, just because they are shoving him down our throats. We can expose the fact that they are stealing the election, and free the delegates at the convention.
