WHY:
The Committee on Governmental Operations of the NY City Council is giving us this opportunity to support our two resolutions:

Resolution 131 urges the adoption of paper ballots and precinct-based optical scanners and accessible ballot-marking machines for voters with disabilities and minority languages. This resolution is against electronic voting!
http://webdocs.nyccouncil.info/textfiles/res%200131-2006.htm?cfid=759601&cftoken=79694900

Resolution 228 urges that the NYC Board of Elections hold public hearings before selecting our new voting machines, and urges public testing to show us that the machines work before selecting them! Sounds simple, but the NYC Board of Elections is not planning to do this at this time.
