Ten Amazing Facts About Voting In The USA

1. 80% of all votes in America are counted by only two companies: Diebold and ES&S.

2. There is no federal agency with regulatory authority or oversight of the U.S. voting machine industry.

3. The vice-president of Diebold and the president of ES&S are brothers.

4. The chairman and CEO of Diebold is a major Bush campaign organizer and donor who wrote in 2003 that he was "committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year."

5. Diebold's new touch screen voting machines have no paper trail of any votes. There is no way to verify that the data coming out of the machine is the same as what was put in by voters.

6. California banned the use of Diebold machines because the security was so bad. Despite Diebold's claims that the audit logs could not be hacked, a chimpanzee was able to do it!

7. 30% of all U.S. votes are carried out on unverifiable touch screen voting machines with no paper trail.

8. All -- not some -- but all the voting machine errors detected and reported in Florida went in favor of Bush or Republican candidates.

9. Serious voting anomalies in Florida -- again always favoring Bush -- have been mathematically demonstrated and experts are recommending further investigation.

10. In the December 2004 Gallup Polls, 1 in 5 Americans said they believe the elections were fraudulent. You are NOT alone!
