AND IS MAKING PROGRESS!
from DefendtheVote, ©2013
This is a much anticipated development for election security in Illinois.
The topic Defend the Vote will be discussing with the Illinois State Board of Elections is critical: Election Security and the Vulnerability Assessment of Security in Relation to the Illinois State Board of Elections. Our goal is to get the Illinois State Board of Elections to consider how to better secure the vote in Illinois by training election judges on security, seals, and signature comparison, as well as get Argonne National Laboratory’s vulnerability assessment team involved with the testing of election machines that are approved for use in Illinois. There are other important security items that Defend the Vote will speak on; to learn more, look for our speaking agenda in your inbox tomorrow!
While I am not sure what time we will speak, the Board usually does not get to the end of their agenda before noon. Defend the Vote will be there when the meeting starts at 10:30 am. Call me as needed; you can leave a message on my land line at 847-382-1100, or call or text my cell at 847-778-3495.
The Board is meeting in Springfield on Monday, but they meet in Chicago at the same time by simultaneously broadcasting a video feed between both locations. You can go to either location to hear Defend the Vote’s testimony before the Board. You can also ask to speak up during the public session. They have a form at the door to fill out. The addresses are:
2329 S. MacArthur Blvd
Springfield, IL 62704
100 W Randolph, Floor 14 Suite 100
Chicago, IL 60601
I will be at the meeting, either in Springfield or in Chicago. I greatly prefer to be in Springfield so I can speak face-to-face with the Board, but Defend the Vote needs funds to make the trip. We ask you to help support us as we fight to clean up elections in Illinois. The day trip will cost about $150. Please click here to make a contribution.
I know this is last minute notice, but if you are available, please come join us! These meetings are very important because when the public shows up, the Board must at least acknowledge your concerns. When no one is there, it is business as usual…
Hope to see you there!
