The following is an announcement from Judy Hess of Progressive Democrats of America- San Diego Metro Chapter. As we've said all along, this is NOT a partisan issue. It's an issue about our democracy and fair elections, so please support our efforts to ensure that voting is fair and accurate in every single election.


A rally is scheduled for 12 noon on Friday at the San Diego County Registrar of Voters Office at 5201 Ruffin Rd. in San Diego, CA to protest the electronic voting security issues surrounding the June 6th Primary Election. All concerned citizens should arrive in the parking lot at 11:30am.

Participants are urged not to block the flow of traffic and be courteous to people entering and leaving the parking lot. We also encourage you NOT to wear partisan buttons, and to recruit Republican friends who understand what is at stake in having
easily rigged, unaccountable, and secret voting practices. It is important for us to counter the Board of Supervisors Propaganda that this is somehow "election year grandstanding" by sore losers.

The rally is being held to protest the use of insecure voting machines and to urge the registrar of voters and local officials to further investigate and consider alternatives.

Voters are concerned because of severe security breaches in the election due to voting machine "sleepovers" and other hardware/software problems. The United States election system continues to be plagued by security issues regarding computer software and chain of custody breakdowns. Further information on this issue will be available at the rally. Please make your voice heard, voter confidence is at stake. Count the votes!

Thanks for your help!
