Doylestown - The People's Filibuster to Save the Vote continued Tuesday, with a constant presence outside the County Courthouse from 9:00am to 5:00pm.

As on Monday, members of the Coalition for Voting Integrity and other concerned citizens gathered outside the Doylestown Courthouse holding signs that said "Honk for Paper Ballots" and "Call Your Commissioners".

Tom Ulrich, lead organizer of the filibuster and member of the Coaltion of Voting Integrity, announced on Tuesday that CVI members and other concerned citizens will continue the public action every weekday for the next two weeks from noon to 1:00 pm beginning Wednesday afternoon.
CVI will also rally Wednesday morning from 9:00 am to 10:00am in the hour leading up to the Commissioners' meeting. The point of the three-day filibuster event is to remind the Commissioners of their responsibility to the voters of Bucks County, who deserve an accurate, verifiable and cost-effective voting system, which will provide a voter-verified paper ballot.


The public is encouraged to attend on Wednesday and every day of the filibuster over the next two weeks. Citizens will be invited to speak. Coalition members will be available at various times throughout the demonstration to answer questions about the issue of voter-verified paper ballots, voting machine options and the lawsuit brought by CVI against the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
