41. They kept the hearings secret and only activists or folks here on DU
knew about the problem with Diebold. After Bev Harris and others here discovered it. Georgia DU'ers tried everything to get Cathy Cox to acknowledge something was wrong. Georgia still has the machines without paper trails, I believe, even though it was demonstrated that they can be manipulated.

My husband and another DU were here in NC for a meeting with the Elections Officials over a years ago to try to stop NC from purchasing more of them.

We here can only do so much. If our legislators and Election officials don't listen to us. We've tried everything. Without a media to alert everyday folks who don't understand the machines could be corrupted we can't get a groundswell to fight it publicly.
