Time for Action - Friday, April 23, 2004 10:00 PM Al to Belinda


I think that I am missing something here.

In the first place, we do not support vvpat. VVPAT is a deception and gives sighted voters the false impression that they are verifying their ballot, but they are not. Under vvpat, the ballot that is counted is the electronic ballot.

We support full-ballot-text paper ballots that are marked by machine or by hand. A company called Vogue Election Systems is in the process of certifying such a paper ballot vote marking machine called AutoMark. Have you tried to use this equipment yet?
