Texas Has A Diebold In ItBy Emelius at 10:00 PM
Texas is at it again in an attempt to cover up electronic voting. The ACLU and a voter in Texas have filed suit to open the Texas voting examiners meetings to be open to the public for openness and feedback. It is believed that by keeping the meetings closed to the public that it actually does a disservice to the community by denying important feedback and preventing issues of irregularities from popping up in the future. Having closed meeting would also allow people to question the legitimacy of votes cast in a heavily red state.
"Closed meetings about these controversial voting machines create a troubling perception," said Jonathan Lebkowsky of the Texas Safe Voting Coalition. "How can a citizen trust a certification process that's hidden from view? This sort of thing is exactly why we have an Open Meetings Act."
