Diebold: Return Our Money!
Velvet Revolution and other non-profits have launched a campaign to achieve a refund of all the money -- over $100 million -- that California has spent on Diebold/Premier's failed and faulty electronic voting systems.
We're also calling on the State to hold Diebold accountable.
Go to the Diebold: Return Our Money site to send an email calling for the following:
Your email will go directly to Diebold/Premier, and to the offices of Secretary of State Debra Bowen and Attorney General Jerry Brown.
Become a fan of this campaign on Facebook!
With enough support, we'll expand this program to other vendors and other states. Why are we starting with Diebold and with California?
California officials recently revealed that ALL of Diebold/Premier's voting systems violate federal certifications guidelines!* These systems illegally do some or all of the following::*
- delete ballots without notice
- allow the "permanent" audit log records to be deleted
- fail to properly record deletion of ballots
- insert incorrect time stamps on audit log items.
Yet Diebold falsely claimed to meet all federal voting system standards!
We will not stand by and tolerate fraudulent use of our tax dollars!
