Press Conference and City Council Vote

Resolution 228 urges public hearings & public testing before our Board of Elections chooses our new voting machines.

All over our country, states and counties are buying equipment that does not work!

Show us a working system before spending our money!

Show us that our Board of Elections can do all the work without vendor technicians running the elections for us with no oversight!

Show us that the equipment cannot be easily hacked!

Show us that all voters will be able to vote, including voters with disabilities and minority languages!

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.
