A Declaration of Crisis


by HUTCH
October 15, 2007

A Call to Act Now to Save Our United States
American Peoples Congress
The Voters Bill of Rights

From unreliable electronic voting machines and millions of uncounted ballots, to partisan election officials and 10 hour waits at the polls, its clear our electoral system is in dire need of an overhaul. To build a more just, secure and robust democracy, support the following 10-point Voters Bill of Rights:



1. Eliminate Rigged Voting Mechanisms

Hand Counted Hard Copy Paper Ballots are Most Reliable
Its demonstrated indisputably that no type of voting machine produced is tamper-proof. All mechanisms available today, whether voting by lever, computerized electronic machines, optical scan devices, even systems that offer paper trail receipts reflecting your vote as cast but which actually vote for the other candidate in the tally the final vote count.

The only real tamper-proof system is voting by paper ballots with votes physically marked by the voter, and those votes tallied counted by hand with non-partisan oversight conducted under oath with federal penalties for misconduct in the election vote counting. Hand counted paper ballots protect our elections.


This must be our national standard for democracy.
