Board of Elections to Decide Future of NY Voting Machines - Public Meeting Wednesday in Saratoga Springs, NY

The future of fair and accurate elections could be decided at this meeting.

If you can't attend, you can call the Board Of Elections and demand that they decide on only using only paper ballots:[masked] phone

Suggestions for those who can attend:

Wednesday January 23, 2008 - Confront Board of Elections Commissioners At BOC Meeting In Saratoga Springs, NY

We should film ourselves asking the commissioners for an interview about ensuring New York has fair elections with paper ballots not electronic - and then if we have to, find out why they don't want to talk to us about it with us and follow them around asking them if they have connections with Diebold, etc... We should hand them information on how the electronic machines that they are still considering using are not accurate, and are subject to rigging. (Hand them this letter?: )

...and put any interview, questions asked, comments to/from comissioners to be compiled for a video to be posted on the internet pending the outcome of the boards decision.

There are six commissioners on the board who will be deciding which type of machines New York uses to replace the lever machines before November 2008: Neil Kelleher (Co-Chair), Helena Moses Donahue, Peter S. Kosinski (Co-Executive Director), Douglas A. Kellner (Co-Chair), Evelyn J. Aquila, and Stanley L. Zalen (Co-Executive Director). So far, despite a list of citizen advocacy organizations pointing out that the electronic touch-screen (DRE) voting machines are not accurate and have many problems - the option is still at the table and could be decided at this meeting. If they decide at this meeting and make the wrong choice, it would be a good idea to have people here to flip over tables...scratch that, I mean politely confront the commissioners at the end of the meeting. Then, there is an opportunity to be interviewed by the media so that the outrageous decision will be broadcast from our point of view millions of New Yorkers.

We can also pass out DVDs of Hacking Democracy, to the commissions, the public, and the media.

The future of fair and accurate elections could be decided at this meeting.

Link to BOE Press Release about Public Meeting - http://www.elections....

"...the decision to authorize one system for the entire state is being made not because it has been judged the most accessible, user friendly, or accurate, but because a partisan split at the Board leaves only one option left on the table."
