Tonight on "Voice of the Voters!"
Starting at 8:00 PM ET Wednesday, April 30th
Heard on 1360 AM Greater Philadelphia & and on the Internet
As opposition to electronic voting grows, Vote By Mail and Internet Voting movements have arisen. Proponents tout the supposed convenience, reduced cost and increased voter turnout of these systems. Tonight's nationally renowned experts discuss the truth of these claims and put them in context: How do these systems measure up
in terms of security, accuracy and transparency? Tonight's show will explore:
--What advantages do these systems offer if any, compared to voting with your feet, on election day?
--What do we sacrifice when we depend on a postage stamp or a mouse click for our vote?
--Who is behind these alternative voting systems? The grassroots or private interests?
