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.)
