July 9, 2009 -- 7:30 PM
-The Threat to Voting in New York and What to do About it: Why lever machines are safe to vote on (and affordable) and optical scanners are neither
Douglas Kellner, Commissioner of NYS Board of Elections
Mark Crispin Miller, renowned author of "Fooled Again, The Real Case for Electoral Reform"
Andi Novick, attorney and driving force behind efforts to preserve New York's constitutionally-compliant lever voting system
-Main Sanctuary at St. Marks Church in the Bowery
10th Street and 2nd Ave in Manhattan
sponsored by the Village Independent Democrats -- all invited, free (212 741- 2994)
New York State is the only left in the U.S. that stills has a transparent and verifiable method of voting. All other states have moved to electronic vote-counting systems that make it impossible for election officials, official observers, candidates, or the public to determine whether the announced vote totals accurately represent the votes cast. These secret vote-counting systems violate the principles of a constitutional democracy as represented in two centuries of statutory law and judicial precedence interpreting New York's Constitution, and as recently held by Germany's Constitutional Court. Yet electronic voting systems are slated to be fully operational in New York by 2010. At this free public event, Andi Novick will outline the reasons New York's Election Reform and Modernization Act (ERMA) is unconstitutional, Mark Crispin Miller will discuss the dangers of electronic vote counting systems, and Douglas Kellner will explain the state's insistence on an expensive change in election technology beyond what is required by the federal government.

Thanks, hope to see you there
Election Transparency
Please Donate and Sign our Petition:
Notwithstanding almost 20 county resolutions and 2,000 New Yorkers resisting ERMA's mandate to replace our trustworthy, reliable, affordable lever machines with expensive, undetectably hackable software-based machines, NYS is moving ahead. The only way to stop the State from making elections less safe and costing taxpayers millions of dollars year after year, is to have ERMA declared unconstitutional. Stop the State from depriving us of our constitutional right to vote. Please make a tax-deductible donation to the Election Transparency Coalition so we can continue our work: And sign the petition in support of retaining our transparent lever voting system (20 counties is a lot more than 2,000 citizens- please circulate this widely).
