 I would like it to be known that my strategy here in Nevada is to prove that Sequoia machines are broken. Only then can we advance to either 'fix' or

replace these machines altogether. As Nevada spent a total of 37 million (21 million from HAVA pool, 15 million additional for Clark County alone and almost a million more in Nevada matching funds) to buy these damnable Sequoia machines I hope that people outside of Nevada understand that independent testing of these machines is the only way to prove that Sequoia machines are

 'broken." Sequoia put on a dog and pony show today for Nevada's legislators and I was there armed with and poised to ask hard questions. Sequoia consistently replied that I was a liar or that I did not have my facts straight.

 I am hoping to amend Nevada SB 492 to include provision for independent testing of Sequoia's machines. If I am successful in even placing the

 conversation before the legislators I aim to import all the citizen activists and other experts that I can gather to come to the defense of Nevada election

 justice. Please address this email to all election integrity activists as well as Senator Hosford and other Nevadans interested in election justice.

 Solidarity,

 Hello Senator Horsford and other good Nevadans:

 We need to amend SB 492 to include the testing of all of Nevada's Sequoia AVC Edge with Verivote Printer voting machines. These machines are rife with

 product defect as is evident by laboratory results from Wyle and Compuware Laboratories as well as demonstrated by use of the machines in Nevada, Chicago City, California and other states.

 Nevada deserves fair, accurate and reliable elections that are not wholly possible with the use of Sequoia Voting Systems. Nevada's Sequoia machines are still under warranty until December 2007. I propose that SB 492 be amended to include provision for testing and fixing Nevada's machines - now before 2008 -while the machines are still under warranty. Vote watchdogs (like me) and politicians across the country from Florida to Texas to Missouri to California have awakened to the undeniable fact that the use of computer driven voting machines - like those manufactured by Sequoia - is an open

 invitation to vote fraud and election chicanery.

 A gander at the attached email will inform you of the stupendous change underway in TX where a bill has been introduced to ban the use of electronic

 computer driven voting machines such as the ones in use here in Nevada. This Texas bill would replace the electronically cast, computer counted ballot
