Sign the DFA Petition to Make Paper Ballots Mandatory!
I urge readers to sign the online petition sponsored by Democracy for America, calling for mandatory verifiable paper ballots in elections. Here is what I wrote for my message to be included with the petition:
The 13th Florida Congressional District fiasco is absolutely the last straw. Electronic voting without a verifiable paper trail is unacceptable and un-American. Our nation stands for genuine democracy, not suspect elections shielded from meaningful recounts. Public trust in elections is flagging and must be built up. Require a verifiable paper trail now!
