Dear Presidential Candidate,
are writing to you regarding the integrity of the voting machines
in the United States. It is our view that some
of the technologies that have been adopted to tabulate votes, both
before and after the 2000 Presidential election, pose a significant
risk to the integrity
of the democratic process in the United States.
write to you specifically to ask your views on this matter. What
steps do you believe should be taken to ensure the
integrity of voting?
look forward to your response. We will post all of the responses
