Doylestown - The Coalition of Voting Integrity announces a candlelight vigil to save the vote. The vigil will begin at 5:30pm on Thursday, February 9th at the Doylestown Courthouse. It will take place in support and anticipation of a Citizens' Rally to Save the Vote, which will take place on Saturday, February 11 at 2pm also at the Doylestown Courthouse.

The point of the both the vigil and the rally will be to encourage Bucks County citizens to contact the County Commissioners to ask that they purchase or lease a voting system that provides a voter-verified paper ballot. Major legislation is currently pending in the Pennsylvania General Assembly that would mandate a voter-verfied paper ballot (HB 2000, SB 977). Federal legislation is also currently pending in the U.S. House of Representatives (H.R. 4666), which would move the deadline for HAVA compliance past the 2006 primaries. In that light, it is vital that the County Commissioners do not rush to act, making a decision that is not only wastes taxpayer money but also also jeopardizes the integrity of our vote.

As in CVI rallies past, Paul Revere (Robert Gerenser) will be there on Thursday and Saturday to remind citizens that time is of the essence and that they must now make their voices heard to their elected representatives. The struggle to save our vote is our own.
