Senate votes to introduce corruptible voting machine
Sens Cole, Chucky Hansen, and Clarence Payne just voted to continue manipulating elections by introducing machines that provide no voter verifiable paper audit trails that the HAVA Act requires. Please cause your senators and protest. Call deJongh and ask him not to sign this bill.
The measure sponsored by Sen. Donald Cole mandates “beginning with the 2014 primary election and all election elections (sic) thereafter, the Joint Boards of Election shall adopt for use as the primary voting system in the Virgin Islands direct recording electronic voting machines.” It defines the acceptable type of machine as one which “records votes by means of a ballot display provided with mechanical or electro-optical components that can be actuated by the voter,” and that produces a “voter-verified paper audit trail.”
I guess it's not a requirement to actually read the decision before posting! For those interested (and before barraging the Governor and the senators with concerns) here's the Source report:
The machine that he has been touting which the senate did not report has internet access and access to the other machines which leads to errors that will leave a voter with the onus to point out the errors.
So what do you suggest as educated options, bearing in mind that issues with electronic voting machines aren't by any means confined to the USVI?
Correct. The name of the corrupt Sen Coles machine is iVotronic and you can view the merits or challenges thereof at www.verifiedvoting.org
This is the link, Tart. By now you should realize I don't say anything about which I don't have absolute proof. Again I say, Donald Ducks Cole and Payne along with out dear Chucky have been pushing and successfully sponsored legislation to place corruptible machines back into the VI Elections system. So when you drive on bumpy roads it should at least be because the people who "won" actually won.
I suggest we use the one used by the state of New York, the one currently housed at the Board of Elections that uses an optical scanner and a machine printed error proof ballot printer, which we already purchased. Do not purchase anymore.
