Fair Elections are a Right; Not a Privelege

What if I were to tell you that the results of the next local, state, or even Presidential election could be controlled by a handfull of people with just a very basic understanding of computers?
In his new book, "Brave New Ballot", Dr. Aviel Rubin points out the blatant security flaws inherent in the new generation of electronic DRE voting machines.
According to Dr. Rubin:
"The electronic voting machines being used in 37 states are vulnerable to tampering, and because the manufaturers are not required to reveal -- even to the government -- how they operate, voters will never know if their votes are recorded accurately."
"All votes are recorded on a single removable card similar to the one in a digtal camera. There is no way to determine if the card or the code that operates the machine have been tampered with."
"It's very easy to change votes, There's no way to determine if that has happened."
Now is our chance to fight back! There is currently legislation pending before the U.S. Congress (H.R. 811 Voter Confidence and Increased Accessability Act of 2007)which would require a voter verifiable paper trail for auditing purposes on all electronic voting machines.
So if you value your right to fair and free elections, you might want to take a few minutes to contact your U.S. Representative (The easiest way is to go to www.house.gov/writerep/ )and urge that person to support this legislation.
