Black Box Voting has set up a National Hand Count Registry

The November 2006 election will dictate control of congress, and voting machines are melting down right and left. Let's take away all the excuses -- Black Box Voting is compiling a national registry of citizens willing to hand count if needed.

Register for the National Hand Count Registry here:


Local regulations permitting, citizens from New Hampshire to New Mexico are telling us they're willing to go where they're needed to help count the ballots. If it becomes necessary, we will contact you to let you know where you are needed.


You never know when your local jurisdiction's voting machines will choke (as happened in Cleveland -- Cuyahoga County, Ohio -- in the May 2 primary). Don't give them any excuses. In Cuyahoga County, 17,000 absentee votes could not be counted on the scanners. What did they do? They reportedly ENTERED EACH VOTE INTO A TOUCH-SCREEN. Next time, we should have a battalion of citizens ready to count those ballots.

In Riverside County, California, citizens who opted for a paper ballot because they didn't trust the touch-screens were dismayed to find that their paper ballot was later punched into a touch-screen.

Black Box Voting is making certain that no elections jurisdiction can claim they don't have anyone to hand count.

Join the BBV National Hand Count Registry now, and please persuade a friend to sign up too.

You will find the link to join the Hand Count Registry on the main page of our Web site:

The direct link to register is at the top of this e-mail.

Thank you, citizens.
