Disappointed in my Precinct

According to the Verifiable Voting Coalition of Virginia, Virginia law requires that all new voting machines be optical scan tabulators that provide a voter-verified paper audit trail. So why did I have to vote on an unverifiable paperless electronic voting machines, known as DRE? Because our lame legislators have allowed for a very long, gradual […]
