33 states will still be using paperless Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) voting machines this November.
What can you do?
1) Sign the petition at http://www.voteraction.org/node/557 to call for an investigation of the voting machine companies still pushing the flawed touch screen DRE equipment. (Check the "featured media" video and "legal action" for the writeup on the nonpartisan lawsuit in Sarasota County.)
2) VOTE! You can't complain if you don't vote.
3) Sign up to vote by mail. The lines will be extremely long this November. In Sarasota County, you can request an absentee ballot simply by calling 941.861.8618.
This is from "The Daily Voting News" of July 30, 2008 by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org (email jgideon@votersunite.org to sign up):
In today’s “Featured” article, Voter Action had this to say in
opposition to S.3212, “The United States Congress should be
investigating, not financing, the private companies that have sold the
DRE systems to states and counties throughout the country. With more
than 3 billion dollars at stake, the American people have the right to
know whether these companies knowingly marketed a defective product, as
some evidence now reveals. If, in fact, any of these companies engaged
in deceptive practices in accessing public funds, they should be held
accountable and states and counties should get their money back. Just as
Congress needed to apply scrutiny to Big Tobacco, it is time for
Congress to investigate the elections industry.” We agree with Voter
Action and call on Congress to defeat S.3212 and any other legislation
that “funds and encourages the continued use of this faulty voting
equipment”.
