Re: E-M:/ Voting machines



------------------------------------------------------------------------- Enviro-Mich message from Phil Shepard ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please note, there is a statewide non-partisan, non-profit organization in Michigan that has been working hard on the voting mancy and related issues for two years: MichiganElectionReformAlliance.Org
We are currently preparing major post-election vote count audit legislation and working with the Advancement Project, NAACP, and ACORN to challenge the MI Department of State's apparently improper (mis)management of voter registration lists (which amounts to voter suppression). Please see our web site for details. Or email me if you would like to get our monthly newsletter.
Thanks.

In the end, the issue of accurate vote counting can be an environmental issue.   In the 2004 presidential election, there were significant discrepancies between the exit polls and the voting machine results.  This has ended up against environmental (and social) interests.  Even if there is no change in the vote tallies, disruption in targeted districts could shift a close race.

Flaws in electronic voting machines are still common and
could easily create havoc in this fall's voting.
