Steve Heller became an election integrity activist after the 2000 election debacle in Florida.

In 2004, he became known to legions of election protection activists as the "Diebold Whistle-blower" for stealing and exposing legal documents proving Diebold was violating California election laws by using illegal, uncertified software in their voting machines. He was charged with three felonies and eventually pleaded guilty to one felony. At this time, he remains on probation.

Partly as a result of Steve's actions, in April 2004, former California Secretary of State Kevin Shelley de-certified Diebold in California for what he called their "fraudulent," "despicable," and "deceitful behavior."

His case is featured in the documentary "Uncounted: The New Math of American Elections" by David Earnhardt.

In November of 2004, Steve went to Columbus, Ohio as a volunteer with nonpartisan get-out-the-vote efforts. While working on election day, he was appalled to see voter suppression techniques in action. As Steve said, "I saw the modern day Jim Crow strutting up and down the streets of inner city Columbus." What he witnessed that day made him more determined than ever to bring to light the crimes against the voters and against clean elections, crimes that undermine our Republic.

Steve was honored to join with Brad Friedman of The BRAD BLOG in consultations with Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) regarding Rep. Kucinich's 35 Articles of Impeachment against George W. Bush. Steve contributed research, documentation, and information which was used in Article 29, "Conspiracy to Violate the Voting Rights Act of 1965." Steve is very proud to have played a part in the creation of this historic and important document.

He is an election integrity blogger for Velvet Revolution's Election Protection Strike Force.

He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and various dogs and cats.
