Action alert re; electronic voting machines

Urge your member of Congress to amend Holt’s HR 811

A movement is growing among election protection advocates to ban Direct Electronic Recording touch screen voting machines (DREs), which are inherently unreliable.

According to the report “E-Voting Failures in the 2006 Mid-Term Elections” prepared by VotersUnite.Org, VoteTrustUSA, VoterAction.Org, and Pollworkers For Democracy, DREs cause problems including voter disenfranchisement, vote-flipping, and fail to meet requirements for disabled voters.

Please, send an email to your member of Congress and ask them to support or offer an amendment that requires paper ballots – which are actually tabulated – as the official ballot and bans DREs.

And, please remember to pass this along!!
