Press Conference and City Council Vote

Resolution 228 urges public hearings & public testing before our Board of Elections chooses our new voting machines.

All over our country, states and counties are buying equipment that does not work!

Show us a working system before spending our money!

Show us that our Board of Elections can do all the work without vendor technicians running the elections for us with no oversight!

Show us that the equipment cannot be easily hacked!

Show us that all voters will be able to vote, including voters with disabilities and minority languages!

WHEN: Wednesday, August 16, 2006

2 PM — Press Conference on Steps of City Hall, please arrive at 1:30pm

Immediately After Press Conference — City Council Vote in City Hall
Observers invited to fill the balcony to observe!

WHERE: Council Chambers, City Hall, New York, NY

N or R to City Hall
4, 5 or 6 to Brooklyn Bridge
J, M, or Z to Chambers Street
2 or 3 to Park Place


Resolution 228 urges that the NYC Board of Elections hold public hearings before selecting our new voting machines, and urges public testing to show us that the machines work before selecting them! Sounds simple, but the NYC Board of Elections is not planning to do this at this time.

Resolution 228

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
