Harvey Wasserman, Co-Author, WILL THE GOP STEAL AMERICA'S 2012 ELECTION?, Green Party Poll Monitor, Bexley, Ohio

 

Background
Revelations by the Columbus, Ohio, Free Press that untested software has been installed in Ohio's vote tabulation system, and closely linked ownership of voting machines by Romney family members and campaign operatives, underscore a serious electronic threat to the integrity of Tuesday's national election, and the desperate need for universal hand-counted paper ballots.

 

Reliance on electronic voting machines means power outages from Hurricane Sandy could deprive many Americans of their right to vote and throw the election into chaos.  Opaque, unmonitorable electronic vote counts add to public skepticism about the integrity of the vote count that continues to escalate dating to Florida 2000 and Ohio 2004.

 

Election protection activists have joined with the Green Party to demand that the United States join Ireland in scrapping its electronic voting machines and return to universal hand-counted paper ballots, currently in use in Germany, Switzerland, Japan, Canada and elsewhere.

 

Bios :
Bob Fitrakis, Green Party nominee for Congress in central Ohio,  is publisher of  the  Columbus Free Press/www.freepress.org and a professor of political science at Columbus State Community College.  He holds a Ph.d. and a law degree.
