Verified Voting for Dutchess County sign now

WE THE UNDERSIGNED respectfully request that the Dutchess County Legislature implement a paper trail verifiable optical-scan voting system, or any other paper trail verifiable (in case of a recount) system. We ask that the County NOT implement any of the other non-verifiable electronic options. We ask that the County NOT do biznis with DBT, Diebold, ES&S, Sequoia, Choicepoint, or any other corporation with a similar past history of wrecking ostensibly democratic elections.

Whereas: The Presidential Election of 2000 resulted in gross irregularities in the counting of the vote, largely due to DBT Inc and Choicepoint Corporation's willingness to lie about the accuracy of their lists of convicted felons, who were subsequently purged from the voter rolls, by Florida Election officials who were willing to take advantage of this, and

Whereas: The result of the 2000 election has been that our supposed legacy of democracy, and the legitimacy of our President, have been in question for over four and a half years, and

Whereas: A willingness to tolerate sophisticated inept expensive fraudulent voting systems, and a possibly corrupt voting process, occurred in Ohio in the Presidential election of 2004, with the now routine apparent willingness of local party election officials to take advantage of any weakness in our supposedly democratic system, and

Whereas: The Congress of the United States, ostensibly representing our country, has decided that the "Help America Vote Act" must and will be implemented to insure uniformity of voting processes, nation wide, and

Whereas: The New York State Legislature has determined that uniformity is somehow best achieved by letting each county go off on it's own ...

WE THE UNDERSIGNED respectfully request that the Dutchess County Legislature implement a paper trail verifiable optical scan voting system, or any other paper trail verifiable (in case of a recount) system. We ask that the County NOT implement any of the other non-verifiable electronic options. We ask that the County NOT do biznis with DBT, Diebold, ES&S, Sequoia, Choicepoint, or any other corporation with a past history of perverting ostensibly democratic elections.
