Overview:

The past few years have seen major changes in the way U.S. votes are cast and counted. In particular, the federal Help America Vote Act of 2002 spurred states and counties into a $3.8 billion rush to near-universal computerized voting. When hundreds of thousands of mostly elderly, volunteer pollworkers encounter hundreds of thousands of electronic voting machines running secret software that few understand and none can examine, what assurance do any of us have that our votes are recorded and counted honestly when it's the control of the U.S. government that's at stake?

Drawing on exit poll evidence, Steven Freeman will demon strate how official explanations for the election results we've been getting in recent years just don't add up. Freeman's analyses, together with a study by the University of California, Berkeley's sociology and demography departments are rcognized to have been the first serious attempts to examine the validity of the outcome of the 2004 presidential election.

Paul Lehto, election law attorney, researcher, and founder of Verifiable Democracy, will contrast the values and standards of democracy as established by the Founders of the American Republic, with the conditions presently governing our election systems, citing election fraud cases he is litigating in Washington state, Kentucky, and San Diego, California, that illustrate an emerging, disturbing picture of a post-democratic America.
