Help Get "Invisible Ballots" on Netflix

"Invisible Ballots" is generally considered the best video available on
touch screen machines and the controversy surrounding their use and
accuracy. Executive producer Edward G. Griffin is pursuing a plan to get
"Invisible Ballots" into Netflix's inventory.

Netflix has some 3 million members and its management and members are more
progressive than its chief rival, Blockbuster. Netflix is rated 72% blue by
buyblue.org, a website that rates companies based on their political
contributions. They have a good and comprehensive political documentary
section and this video is right up their alley.

Since the mainstream media will continue to ignore this issue, getting
"Invisible Ballots" onto Netflix will help a lot in getting the word out.
Over time, it could play a substantial part in creating another wave of
touch screen activists.

What we can do to help is to write to Netflix and ask them
to carry this title. Netflix's phone system is difficult to navigate for
anyone: members and nonmembers. Their email system on their website is designed mainly for members. The
best available option is the snail mail letter.

SAMPLE LETTER

Dear Netflix:

Title request: Invisible Ballots

I want to strongly encourage Netflix to add "Invisible Ballots" to your
inventory. This video IS listed in the Internet Movie Database.
Invisible Ballots is a 90-minute documentary (with a shorter, 50-minute version included) on touch screen voting
machines and the controversy that surrounds their use and accuracy. It
features interviews with top computer scientists and touch screen activists.
"Invisible Ballots" is universally considered the best video available on the
subject at present.


This is exactly the kind of unique subject video that Netflix is very good
at carrying. And it would help you maintain and increase your upper hand
over Blockbuster in my opinion.


Sincerely, Name, Address, Phone, Email

* If you aren't a member and this is the type of video that would be the
deciding factor getting you to join, you could include that in your letter.
Letters from current members have more sway, so if you know people who are
members you could tell them about this--they can request the title online
by clicking to CONTACT US link at the bottom of the home page and going to
title request.
