Raising the Bar on Election Protection VS OOPS

Tonight on "Voice of the Voters!"
Wednesday, May 28 -- Starting at 8:00 PM ET

Heard on 1360 AM Greater Philadelphia & and on the Internet
Call in with questions live at 856-227-1360
Share your ideas on improving election integrity and citizen participation/observability

Tonight Bev Harris of BlackBoxVoting.org will join us as we continue
the discussion of the need for elections to be observable and observed.

> Why has a culture of "OOPS" permeated and been tolerated in
the election industry, when it would not be acceptable for
minimum wage workers in corporate America? It's as if our elections are now a game of limbo---"how low can we go?"

> How can we raise the bar on election protection, not to "perfection" but to something that is "enough"?

> What is in the Black Box Voting 2008 Tool Kit? New Innovations?
> What can we do in the five months before November 2008 as individuls and as groups?
> What did we learn from the Primaries?

Guest Bio:

Bev Harris, founder and director of BlackBoxVoting.org and featured in the HBO documentary film Hacking Democracy, began writing on the subject of electronic voting in 2002 after she discovered that U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel had ownership in and had been CEO of the company
that built the machines which counted his own votes. Vanity Fair magazine credits Bev Harris with founding the movement to reform electronic voting. Time Magazine calls her book, Black Box Voting, "the bible" of electronic voting. The Boston Globe has referred to her as "the godmother" of the election reform movement.

Her facts check out. Her original investigative work has been featured frequently in The New York Times, the Washington Post, The Associated Press, Reuters, and on CBS, NBC, ABC, CNBC, MSNBC, CNN and Fox News,
and in many European media outlets.

After discovering that we have a voting system that has become divorced from the citizens it serves, Bev Harris founded a nonprofit group to help citizens fight back. The focus of Black Box Voting is to restore the ownership of elections to The People.
