Voter-verifiable ballots: press conference!

VT governor Howard Dean, California Secretary of State Kevin Shelley, and Representatives Holt (NJ), Kaptur (OH), and Clay (MO), and other members of Congress are holding a press conference tomorrow (Wed Jul 28) at 12:45pm (but be there by 12:30 at the latest) at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Cambridge (http://www.sonesta.com/boston/) in its Grand Ballroom. It is open to the public, and they'd like as many people there as possible to show support.

The press conference is to celebrate the statement on accessible, "independently auditable", accurate and secure voting which was adopted for the Democratic platform, and to reaffirm that voter-verified paper ballots are the only means for "independently auditable" elections.

I hope you will be able to come, and feel free to forward this announcement to others who would like to come and show their support.

(Incidentally: Representatives Capuano (D-MA, Somerville/Cambridge) and Lynch (D-MA, South Boston) are not yet sponsors of HR2239, which mandates voter-verifiable paper ballots. If you are one of their constituents (click here to find out), this would be a good time to write your representative and let them know they should sponsor!)
