VoteRescue and its Coalition Bring in Compelling Witnesses

And Host Two Related Events

Witnesses will include:

Bruce Funk: Emery County Utah election official who in 2006 invited in the Black Box Voting “hacking team” to examine his Diebold touch screen machines with printers added. They discovered “the worst security holes ever found” in electronic voting systems.

Clint Curtis: Programmer from Florida who designed “vote-flipping” software while employed at Yang Enterprises in 2000; became a whistleblower who gave a deposition about this in court. (Clint was invited by the State to testify)

Jim March: Technology expert, Black Box Voting Board member, co-plaintiff in the 2004 California lawsuit against Diebold for running uncertified software in their machines, which Diebold lost. Jim will discuss the ineffectiveness of the federal certification process of electronic voting systems.

Noel Runyan: Expert on evaluation of accessibility of electronic voting systems for the disabled. Wrote the 2007 report for the University of California stating that NONE of the e-voting systems currently in use fulfill the HAVA mandate for the disabled.
