Rally for paper ballots in Albany!

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)     (# of views)   No comments
A rally will be held on Wednesday, November 15, 2006 calling for adoption of paper ballots and precinct ballot scanners in New York State. The rally will be held at 11am on the East steps of the Capitol Building in Albany, New York.

The many failures of electronic touch screen voting machines on Election Day resulted in long lines and lost votes at polling places around the United States. But in states that used paper ballot based voting, if problems occurred it was possible to conduct recounts. New York Counties must guarantee that we can confirm and audit election results by choosing a system using hand marked paper ballots. Why repeat the expensive mistakes that other states have made, when we can get it right the first time?
Join New Yorkers for Verified Voting and the League of Women Voters of New York State on Wednesday, 11/15/06 in Albany. Let's make our voices heard – Paper Ballots for New York!

Rally Date: Wednesday, November 15, 2006

Time: 11 AM

Location: East Steps of the Capitol Building, Albany NY
