Black Box Voting : Latest News : Mainstream News Reports: (FL) 5/08 - Voting rights advocate Susan Pynchon honored by ACLU

Posted by Bev Harris on Saturday, May 17, 2008 - 7:33 am:

(From BBV admin): Susan Pynchon is one of the truly brilliant researchers and voting rights advocates in America today. Black Box Voting has worked with Susan and her organization, the Florida Fair Elections Coalition, quite often since both our organizations were founded in 2004. Pynchon is recognizable to those who watched "Hacking Democracy" as "the woman who cries at the end." I cannot tell you how many people have written to tell me that they, too, cried. But she consistently picks herself up and comes back swinging.

Civil liberties group to honor local election watchdog L051708.htm

Local election watchdog Susan Pynchon is one of four people being
honored tonight by the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of
Florida for leading the charge to reform state voting systems.

"The fight for fair elections is one of the great civil rights
struggles of this decade," said Pynchon, founder and executive
director of the DeLand-based Florida Fair Elections Coalition.

Pynchon can be seen in HBO's documentary "Hacking Democracy" digging
through the trash at the Volusia County elections office after the
November 2004 presidential election finding what appear to be
discarded poll tapes.

The ACLU Foundation of Florida's Nelson Poynter Civil Liberties Award
is presented each year to an individual or group of individuals who
have made an outstanding contribution to the advancement of civil

Pynchon will share the award, being presented at a ceremony in St.
Petersburg, with three other recipients: Kindra Muntz of the Sarasota
Alliance for Fair Elections and Dan McCrea and Pamela Haengel of the
Florida Voters Coalition.
