How Can We Restore the Integrity of Our Electoral System?
Let’s Talk About the Bottom Line

What: “A Call for Honest Elections: How Electronic Voting Threatens Democracy and What We Can Do About It”

Where: The Community Church of New York Unitarian Universalist, 40 E. 35th Street, New York

When: Wednesday, December 14th at 6:30 p.m.

The most basic step toward building the type of America we want is putting people in office who share our vision. If the way we cast and count votes is broken, nothing else can get fixed.

From lost votes to hackable software, the electoral system is broken. Noted authors and activists are coming to New York to talk about what can be done. Can you join in?

The event is called “A Call for Honest Elections: How Computerized Voting Threatens Democracy and What We Can Do About It”, and it’s on Wednesday, December 14th at 6:30 p.m. The program will feature musical satire, illuminating discussion, and activist networking and action.

This event, which will be a launching pad for effective action, will be held at The Community Church of New York Unitarian Universalist, 40 E. 35th Street, New York, NY. Tickets are $15, $10 for seniors/students/fixed or low income. (Your money can have more impact for a $50 or $100 ticket – you’ll receive a signed copy of Mark Crispin Miller’s recent book and you’ll be contributing to the great work of New Yorkers for Verified Voting and TrueMajority’s SpeakEZ.)

The discussion will be led by panelists who are well-known advocates of electoral reform:

Rachel Maddow, Host of Air America’s “The Rachel Maddow Show”
Robert Fitrakis, co-author of How the GOP Stole America’s 2004 Election and Is Rigging 2008
Bo Lipari, Executive Director of New Yorkers for Verifiable Voting

We also need dedicated volunteers to help at the event, including seating, admission, tabling, sign-ups, etc. If you can help, please write to and include your name, the date and times you are available, and any task preferences.

No Comments to “NY event, 12/14”

  • Wow. Leftists gripe and moan about conservative churches getting involved in politics, and here we have the Unitarian church hosting a crackpot-crybaby-sore-loser meeting. Figures.

  • Dear Mark, This event will be fabulous!
    Rachel Maddow was brilliant covering Katrina in Al Franken’s absence, and she is indestructible on CNN with T.C. Bob Fitrakis is a hero for our time as he struggles for fair elections in Ohio, you are a tireless and inspirational educator regarding our last two fraudulent presidential elections. I look forward to hearing Bo Lipari for the first time. This call for honest elections is at the heart of our Democracy. Bravo!
