On July 10, 2006 at 10am, VoterGA, a voter advocacy group, will file a lawsuit against the State of Georgia "against implementing E-Voting that it can't be verified, audited, or recounted." VoterGA asserts that the current electronic voting system in GA violates sections of the Georgia Constitution, State Elections Code, Equal Protections laws in Georgia and the US, and US Supreme Court rulings. And who hasn't read about Georgia's "failed experiment?"
A year long expert study by the Brennan Center for Justice (www.brennancenter.org) concludes that software attacks pose a real threat to ALL electronic voting machines. Simple countermeasures -- a random audit of paper records and elimination of wireless systems - are all that is necessary to secure that most sacred of American guarantee...that every vote will count, and every vote will be counted.
So Charlie, why not get on board and support a nationwide paper trail requirement and a ban on wireless systems? Take up the fight for a guaranteed count of every vote. Co-sponsor H.R. 550-the Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act. What have to lose...except perhaps, an election?
