Friday, June 1st: The Future of Democracy in the Current American Electoral System

Press Release
Message Press Release

Friday, June 1, 7:00 PM, SUNY NEW PALTZ
Lecture Center 100 (LC 100) New Paltz, NY



Did you know that every state in the Union except New York now uses computers to vote on and/or to count all votes secretly?

  • The votes are counted by computers owned by private corporations who won't reveal any information or otherwise permit the public to examine the software. There is no way to know how the votes were counted or whether they were counted at all.

Did you know that numerous government and university studies have all agreed that there is no such thing as tamper-proof computer software and that an entire election can be rigged without detection of the tampering?

Did you know that
New York is the only state that has yet to decide how our votes are going to be counted?

  • Because our founding documents assert that all power derives from the people; that it is the people who choose their government, shouldn't the people decide if they want corporations to be permitted to control and conceal the vote counting from the public? Shouldn't we decide how to protect the integrity of our ballots?

Learn what's happened in the last few years since citizens lost control over their elections. Then learn what we can do as New Yorkers, who still have a fighting chance. You won't find the facts in the main stream media so you must be present, Friday evening, June 1st, to know what is required of each of us to retain our right to self-rule.
