Hi, Barbie! Based on your post, you might find the info and links below of interest (it was sent to me--I did not compile it):

Distribute the following facts about voting in the United States.
Let your friends know, because their TV won't....

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.

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. Republican Senator Chuck Hagel used to be chairman of ES&S. He became Senator based on votes counted by ES&S machines.

9. Diebold's new touch screen voting machines have no paper trail of any votes. In other words, there is no way to verify that the data coming out of the machine is the same as what was legitimately put in by voters.

11. Diebold is based in Ohio.

13. Jeff Dean was Senior Vice-President of Global Election Systems when it was bought by Diebold.

16. California banned the use of Diebold machines because the security was so bad. Despite Diebold's claims that the audit logs could not be h@cked, a chimpanzee was able to do it! (See the movie here: http://blackboxvoting.org/baxter/baxterVPR.mov.)
