Volunteer for TechWatch! (voting) /

Are you a technology professional interested in election integrity? A geek who believes every vote should be recorded as intended? A techie who stands for reliable and publicly verifiable election systems?

If so, TechWatch is for you!

TechWatch volunteers will receive training and participate in important non-partisan election monitoring activities, observing and documenting:

* Logic & Accuracy testing of voting technology by election officials prior to Election Day
* Poll Watching on Election Day (assigned to a single polling place or central election office)
* Election Incidents on Election Day (on dispatch from an Election Incident Reporting system to polling places within a given county)

By applying technical expertise to mind the polls, TechWatch volunteers can chronicle election problems at this upcoming election and future elections, as well as for follow-on litigation and policymaking, in a way that most poll watchers cannot.

More than 500 technologists have already volunteered, but it will take thousands of TechWatch volunteers to cover priority states and key counties, starting with the Florida primary on August 31 and continuing through to the November 2 general election.

(hope they can weed out the moles)

2. I don't think I'm enough of a geek
to be able to help with this. I know *some* PHP, and a smattering of other stuff, though.

3. Any connection between these folks and Bev Harris....
...and are the actions these groups plan to take going to be effective, or will they simply be a distraction for the volunteers who really want to take effective action against emachine fraud?
