Democracy at Risk




Please join us for a "Lou Dobbs Tonight" special this Sunday at 7 p.m. ET:
"America Votes 2006: Democracy at Risk."


We'll have a series of special reports on the dangers electronic voting
machines pose to the integrity of America's elections.


Plus, we'll be joined by two lawmakers leading the fight to secure our
nation's elections, Rep. Rush Holt, D-New Jersey, and state Rep. Brady Wiseman,
D-Montana.


Then, three of America's leading electronic voting experts tell us what
they're doing to prevent an election disaster.


............................


You are invited to a Free Preview Screening and
panel discussion of the HBO documentary ¦


Hacking Democracy
87% of America's votes are counted on
electronic voting machines
But there's a glitch in the system ¦


Sunday, October 29th at 7:15 PM


Special guests Bev Harris, Executive Director of Black
Box Voting Inc. and subject of the film; Ion Sancho,
Supervisor of Elections, Leon County, Florida; and Douglas
Kellner, New York State Elections Commissioner, will join
us after the film for a panel discussion.


Hacking Democracy is the story of how Bev Harris set
about proving that not only are America's elections
unsafe, but that election officials, politicians and the
companies that count the vote actively conspire to stop
anyone from checking that the results are correct.

A few days before the November 2004 election, Jimmy Carter was asked what
would happen if, instead of flying to Zambia or Venezuela or East Timor, his
widely respected international election monitoring team was invited to turn its
attention to the United States. His answer was stunningly blunt. Not only
would the voting system be regarded as a failure, he said, but the shortcomings
were so egregious the Carter Center would never agree to monitor an election
there in the first place. "We wouldn't think of it," the former president
told a radio interviewer. "The American political system wouldn't measure up to
any sort of international standards, for several reasons."
