ETC (Election Transparency Coalition) Applauds Nassau County Suing NY State to Retain Lever Voting

Nassau County Files Suit Against NYS Over ERMA

Friday, March 26, 2010

The Election Transparency Coalition applauds Nassau County for filing suit against the State of New York over its unconstitutional election law, the Election Reform and Modernization Act (ERMA).

ETC has long held that ERMA is unconstitutional because its mandate that counties switch over from the time-tested, trustworthy and transparent lever voting systems to electronic vote-counting systems will end meaningful public oversight of the publics elections. That mandate must not be allowed to stand.

Since New York State has already complied with the federal requirement of at least one accessible voting device for voters with special needs at each poll site, we urge the Court to act quickly and decisively to halt the implementation of the states legislation before more taxpayer dollars are spent on equipment that must not be used to count votes in New York.
