Take action: Voting machines in New York State
This just in from the Rapid Response Network:
Issue: The committee which will be choosing NY's voting machines seems to be dragging its feet. As Bo Lipari explains in his email message (following in full, below, in the info section), "the HAVA conference committee seems reluctant to call for outright adoption of this [The Paper Ballot/Optical Scanner, PBOS] highly reliable, auditable, accessible, and cost effective voting system. But by not requiring it now, the committee will essentially punt the voting machine decision to the State Board of Elections. And if that happens, we're facing many more months of fighting to keep touch screen voting machines out of our polling places."
