BBV: are your Senators cosponsoring The Voter Confidence Act?
bbv=black box voting=voting on electronic machines which don't print paper ballots

http://www.moveleft.com/moveleft_voter_conf_act_cospons...


Electronic voting machines can be rigged by the companies which make them.

Suppose on the night of November 2, 2004, electronic voting machines say George W. Bush won the election, and exit polls say John Kerry won the election. Unless "The Voter Confidence Act" to require electronic voting machines to print paper ballots has become law, there will be no way to do a meaningful recount. George W. Bush will get 4 more years.

Please ask your Senators to cosponsor The Voter Confidence Act, bill number S.1980, to protect the accuracy of the 2004 election.

Phone 1-800-839-5276 (Capitol Hill Switchboard), ask to be transferred to the office of one of your Senators, and leave a message requesting that the Senator cosponsor the bill.

sample phone words:

Hello, may I speak to the office of Senator ________?
(call transferred)
Hello, I'd like to leave a message for the Senator to please cosponsor the Voter Confidence Act, S.1980, to protect the accuracy of elections.


________________________________________
The Voter Confidence Act makes it more difficult to rig an election. It requires electronic voting machines to print paper ballots, which are checked by each voter and then stored for auditing and recounts.

1. No, but...
My wife handed out BBV fliers at the local DEM meeting today. We are hoping to make the phones ring at our Congressman's office as well as our Senator's offices.
