America Flips Over New Hi-Tech Voting Methods

When I bring the topic up in casual conversation, I’m shocked at how unaware most people are of the pervasiveness of election manipulation in America. For a simple “you are there” demonstration, watch the video at left for an example of the sort of thing that can happen. Diebold, one of the biggest providers of voting machines, has even admitted that half of its machines in Ohio are faulty. This after their former CEO said in 2003: “I am committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year.” So what can you do? BlackBoxVoting.org was one of the first well-organized non-partisan groups to address this issue, and remains a great resource. You can also check out the Election Protection coalition, via that link or by phone at 866-OUR-VOTE. And if you have ANY DOUBT at all that your vote is being improperly tabulated, call over an election worker and bring it to their attention before you complete the process. And then just pray, because, as I’ve pointed out before , organizations like International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance don’t have a section devoted to North America.
