Software-driven optical scanners or DREs are no way to run a democratic election. In 50% Percent of Sequoia Voting Machines Flawed, Kim Zetter reports on NY's statewide failure rate of Sequoia's optical scanners, the ones most NY counties are using as Ballot Marking Devices only for 2008 but will be used to count all our votes in 2009, unless we stop them. See also NY Loves Its Levers as New Systems Fail. New Yorkers are now discovering what the rest of the country has always known: software driven systems are unreliable.  New York could have known: the evidence is there for the reading.   

Notwithstanding that evidence exposing the "crap" voting vendors have sold across the nation, New York continues to proceed with Eyes Wide Shut.  We must and should provide accessible voting devices for those with special needs enabling everyone to vote independently.  But we must not permit these flawed, unreliable and vulnerable-to-undetectable-tampering optical scanners to be used to count our vote.   

New Yorkers are privileged to be the only state with a secure, transparent, reliable lever voting system.  Why would we abandon our trustworthy theft-deterring lever voting system for theft-enabling, defective optical scanners?  Join with the rest of New York VOTERS who will be asking the state court for a ruling that forcing us to vote on concealed, undetectably mutable optical scanners violates our constitutional right to a reliable, open, electoral process, as we have enjoyed for so many decades with our current lever voting system.  Go to and we'll keep you informed of how you can participate and support the lawsuit to save our secure lever voting system. 

To see close up and personal, why is it so important that we preserve the only secure voting system left in America, come see what has happened across the nation where every state has privatized and computerized their elections. Huge opening in NYC, August 1st through 7th -  STEALING AMERICA, Vote by Vote is a "must see" film which will be appearing in movie theatres across America, beginning with its New York City premiere on Friday, August 1.

Eight-minute trailer for STEALING AMERICA:
