Publicize Diebold's failures.

There were serious problems with the touchscreen voting machines in the California primary election, but of course Diebold went right ahead and took out huge half-page ads in major newspapers trumpeting their success.

Read about what happened here and here. The facts are quite alarming: 200 precincts were affected; some voters were turned away; and the lack of certification is a blatant violation of the law.

Note that a lawsuit has been filed in San Diego against Shelley and four California counties by disabled advocacy groups, claiming that Shelley's directives deprived them of the right to vote independently on touchscreens.

You may want to tell Kevin Shelley that you support verified voting. Ask him to maintain a steady hand and continue the push for an audit trail.
