Don't let California be the next Florida

In California, you have the legal right to use a paper ballot if you are concerned about the reliability of electronic voting machines.

Given the enormous security vulnerabilities with electronic voting machines, I'm asking everyone to vote on paper to ensure a verifiable record exists of your vote. Don't let anyone manipulate your vote after you cast it!

Pass this message on in your journal.

(Pollworkers in Santa Clara County are being instructed not to mention this to voters, and to provide paper ballots only upon specific request. - EFF)
