Please take action and forward to your contacts.
This has national implications. For the first time ever, we have the
opportunity to subpoena key voting industry witnesses to get them
under oath in front of a senate hearing to investigate what the Sam Hill they were doing when they created and recommended tamper-friendly voting systems.
We're sure by now you're aware that Calif. did an about face and
certified Diebold's entire line of products -- hackable touch screens,
hackable optical scanners, and extremely hackable GEMS tabulators
-- despite 100% public opposition and numerous attacks proving the sytems' fatal flaws and insecurities.
Everything is at stake.
We are putting some very important phone numbers and emails here
along with simple instructions for what we all need to do.
immediately. EVERY STATE is experiencing issues with secret, privatized voting equipment examined by mysterious private contractors who won't answer any questions at all about what they do.
Here is the most efficient, easiest strategy to counteract shoving illegal and insecure systems that we never asked for down our throats. This action is the culmination of years of hard-core work by Black Box Voting and others. JUST DO IT.
Here are the simple, painless suggestions. See below for why they are so important.
This comes down to only FIVE emails, FIVE faxes, FIVE calls.
Do you have one good excuse for not being able to make five contacts? On second thought-- don't think one up. Just do it, please.
Remember; your tax dollars are paying not only for this equipment,
but for the voting machine examiners who refused to answer any
questions in last week's Calif. Senate Elections Committee hearing.
WHAT'S DIFFERENT ABOUT THIS CALL TO ACTION:
1) All we need is three out of five senators.
2) All five are interested and willing to listen
3) This is the FIRST time Black Box Voting has issued a call to action.
We believe grass roots calls to action lose their punch when overused. We have waited until now because, like the Black Box Voting Hursti project, we know THIS effort is highly strategic and can create real change, quickly.
