Rep. Mckinney Challenges "Diebold Democracy"

Press Release
September 27, 2006


(Atlanta, GA) Rep. Cynthia McKinney, will be holding a press conference on Saturday September 30th at 3:00 pm at the Omega Center, 3951 Snapfinger Parkway in Decatur, Georgia to address concerns about disfranchisement of voters through the use of inaccurate and unverifiable voting machines in recent national and local elections.

In the award-winning film American Blackout several experts testify to current efforts to discourage and disenfranchise African-American voters who won their right to vote during the civil rights struggles of the last century as well as manipulation of the primaries and elections in predominantly African-American DeKalb County.

"Without a clear paper trail or use of paper ballots, there is no way to verify electoral results, and many ways to compromise them," McKinney said.

Experts will demonstrate the use of a variety of voting machines and discuss their vulnerability to hacking and other manipulation, and their lack of verification to certify for election results. Speakers include:

Richard Searcy, who will demonstrate the TruVote machine Roger Perez, CEO of IBS, who will demonstrate their voting machine Abbe DeLozier, co-author of HACKED! High Tech Election Theft in America Mike Raffauf, attorney

Additional speakers to be announced.
