Campaign to Reclaim

The ‘Campaign to Reclaim’ is based on new evidence (presented here in video) that exposes potential commercial fraud associated with the marketing and sale of defective voting systems throughout the country.  Our goal with this campaign is to increase public awareness around these serious issues and to empower people to take action. 

Through collaboration with Public Interest Pictures, we have produced several media tools to help you learn more about these issues and to assist you in engaging others.  We encourage you to share this information with your friends, relatives and local election administrators to help develop new solutions, including recourse through litigation and a full Congressional investigation, to hold US voting systems companies accountable for potential breach of contract and ultimately, to protect your vote.

Here are ACTIONS you can take to address these critical issues:

The Trouble With Touchscreens

By Dan Rather Reports, #227, HDnet


Voter Action's Legal Director, John Bonifaz, discusses the significance of "The Trouble with Touchscreens", from how this new evidence  may reveal commercial fraud, to how these defective voting machines may have altered the outcome of multiple elections.  


Edited highlights of the episode provide key details from the report showing evidence that at least one voting system vendor may have sold their equipment knowing that it was defective and another vendor may have deliberately altered the punch card ballots for the Florida 2000 election.
