       California's Voting Machines Problems?...
      If Not, Read The Following...

      *(April 4th, 2007)
      California first-term Secretary of State Debra Bowen dropped a bombshell on
      March 22 by announcing unprecedented tough new standards for all
      voting machines used here. Testing requirements would include
      having independent hacker teams attempt breaking into
      the controversial new touch-screen electronic voting
      machines. Bowen also wants the actual software of these
      e-voting machines, so it could be studied line by line for security gaps...

      *(July 29, 2007)
      The California Secretary of State's office has published the results of voting
      machine security audits conducted by red teams on products from
      three different vendors: Sequoia, Diebold, and Hart. Serious
      vulnerabilities -relating to both physical and technical
      security-were found in all three products...

      *(August 3, 2007)
      On August 3, 2007, Secretary Bowen announced her decisions regarding
      which systems in the review will be permitted to be used in the
      2008 elections and beyond. The following documents
      detail Secretary Bowen's decisions.

      H.R. 811 - Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act of 2007

      Tell Congress: Fix the Machines!
      (People For The american Way)
      Recurring machine errors, like those in Sarasota, Florida, inadequate poll worker
      training, and serious security flaws with both the machines and their
      vote-tabulating software are enormous threats to the integrity
      of American elections. Congressman Rush Holt has
      reintroduced legislation, the Voter Confidence
      and Increased Accessibility Act of 2007, that would
      prevent such problems in the future. The Holt bill, which
      already has 191 bipartisan co-sponsors in the House, would
      make paper ballots or voter-verifiable paper trails the ballots of
      record in all federal elections, and require all voting technology to be
      audited and accessible. The time is now for Congress to act on this legislation;
      if it becomes law this year (2007), it will help to prevent another Sarasota-or
      something far worse-in 2008. YOU can speak out against this injustice
      now by contacting your Representative and asking him or her to
      support the Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act of 2007
