Voting Machines

I haven’t seen any articles about the voting machine problem in the last week or so. More and more counties are buying voting machines that cannot be audited, and there are suspicions about the ownership of the companies that manufacture the machines. Regardless of the ownership issue – do you want to have voting machines that have no way to independently verify what the machine records. Never mind the potential for vote tampering – what happens if the machine just breaks? Do you just not count all the votes from that precinct? Neighborhoods can tend to have like-minded voters, so losing all the votes from a machine can change local election results.

I hope everyone reading this talks to others, writes to their local, state and federal representatives, as well as writing to newspapers and calling talk shows. This is an extremely important subject!!!
