Judy Alter (Judith B. Alter Ed.D.), emeritus UCLA Professor, began working on election justice issues four days after the CA Oct. 2003 Recall election when Lynn Landes offered compelling evidence about how Diebold machines swung the election away from Bustamante to the current "governor."She conducted 8 parallel elections in LA County for the special election in Nov.2005 and helped set up others in four other CA counties (total 19).
