You'll be helping to uphold the right of every citizen to monitor every election.

Ellen  was arrested on November 13, 2008 under the authority of Brenda Snipes, Supervisor or Elections while trying to observe the counting of our votes. Ellen was physically thrown out of the Canvassing Board Meeting of November 7, 2008, for raising her hand to ask three questions. She was threatened with arrest for Trespassing and Disorderly Conduct should she ever return again to the Voting Machine Warehouse. The Disorderly Conduct charges were dropped, yet the State Attorney representing the Supervisor of Elections continues to use this as justification for her arrest. So how is it possible for a citizen to be charged with trespassing when they are attending a Public Meeting to witness the Counting of our Votes?

The Supervisor of Elections property is limited to inside the building itself. Was Ellen in the Box or Out of the Box? This very fact and others are being disputed, that is why Judge Berman did not dismiss the case.

Ellen pleaded NOT GUILTY at her arraignment on January 26, 2009. The Florida Sunshine Laws provide for the public to attend and address the proceedings of any public meeting including Vote Counting. Florida Statute 104.29 has provided the public the legal right to hear and see how our votes are being counted.

Judge Berman is the same Judge that presided over the canvassing board during the February 2005 Black Box Voting Video “Pedro.”  Judge Berman says all Broward Judges at some point get recycled to serve on Canvassing Boards and he believes he can try the case fairly.

Ellen's attorneys want to make sure that I can get a fair trial in Broward County.

“Being arrested is not recommended and ultimately, the experience makes us sick of our government. That is the effect that they hope for, which is to punish us for trying to be good citizens when we expect transparency and open government.”


Ellen H. Brodsky,

Founder, Broward Election Reform Coalition,

Candidate for Supervisor of Elections, Broward County, November 2008,, 954-263-6032
