I had never heard of Joan Brunwasser or "Invisible Ballots: The Temptation for Electronic Vote Fraud " on February 26, 2006.
However, I was a "read-every-page" subscriber of YES! Magazine, and that evening I saw an article in the Spring 2006 issue about "Invisible Ballots. " A blurb at the bottom described Joan 's free lending library of this documentary film. At 5 the next morning I e-mailed Joan to find out more about it. She responded immediately.
The bottom line: Joan 's enthusiasm and wonderful lending library for "Invisible Ballots " inspired me to get the film and spread the word about it.
Recommending and distributing "Invisible Ballots " here in Northern California has visibly increased the interest of countless people in the problem with electronic vote counting. It 's being shown to the public in small towns, aired on our public access TV stations, and at countless house parties. The result? People are getting in involved!
And Joan, again showing me and others how one person can make a difference with a good teaching tool like "Invisible Ballots, " has raised funds to buy hundreds (editor's note: actually, thousands) of DVD 's and is taking them to distribute to the progressives attending the "Take Back America " convention this weekend in Washington, D.C.
