Help ensure reliable voting machines

California’s Secretary of State, Bruce McPherson, is about to make a very important decision for the future of democracy as he weighs whether to recertify Diebold-manufactured elections equipment in this state. With a January 1, 2006 deadline looming, we’re sure he’s under enormous pressure. It is critical that he hear from the citizens of California who have real and serious concerns about the integrity of this system.
Given what we know about the priorities of the current U.S. Congressional leadership, we simply cannot wait for federal leadership on this issue. As with so many issues like this, California has to lead. Secretary McPherson must be encouraged to do the right thing here – send our action alert today to assure that he does so.
