Take Action: Stop Vote Flipping In West Virginia

TrueVote.US

Press Release/Action Alert

Every day there are reports from voters of machines flipping the vote. So far, all the reports have been votes changing from Obama to McCain. Click here to take action.

This is reminiscent of the experience in Sarasota, FL in 2006. When the voting was completed and they counted the vote, they discovered that the vote flipping was the tip of the iceberg. The machines, the iVotronic - the same ones being used in West Virginia, had 18,000 blank ballets. This was enough to change the outcome of the election. Election officials were unable to reconstruct the race. For more on this see "Vote Flipping with the iVotronic the Florida 2006 Experience" at http://truevote.us/nucleus/index.php?itemid=363 which includes a comment by an election integrity advocate in Sarasota as well as links to reports, including from the U.S. GAO, on the 18,000 lost votes.

We are demanding that the state remove any machine that reportedly flips the vote or resists taking voter's choices. Such machines should be immediately removed. Voters should not be forced to vote on a machine that shows intermittent or continuous misalignment. These problems can be a sign of fraudulent software or hardware this is not likely to be corrected by recalibration of the machine.

Further, if the problems continue the state should be preparing for a paper ballot election with hand counts. At this late stage of the game that is the only alternative that seems possible.

If you haven't sent letters to officials in Florida, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia regarding their inadequate voting equipment, machines, stations and election staff, please do so by clicking here.

Sincerely,

Kevin Zeese

Executive Director

ENDS

TrueVote.US is an outgrowth of a five-year campaign for verifiable voting in Maryland. The campaign by TrueVoteMD.org was a cross-partisan effort of thousands of Maryland voters who wanted to end the failed experiment with paperless voting.
