Virginia Verified Voting has sent out an alert about an upcoming meeting of the "Joint Subcommittee Studying the Voting Equipment Certification Process" on Tuesday, July 19. VaVV lists the subcommittee members here. Their alert reads:
Virginia is holding hearings to consider requiring voter-verified paper audit trails for voting equipment. Many Virginia jurisdictions have purchased paperless electronic voting machines, and others are considering doing so.
Digital voting machines that lack a voter-verified paper trail are subject to programming errors and possible fraud, with no ability for meaningful audits or recounts.
Attend the hearings and show support for voter-verified audit trails by wearing orange shirts or ribbons. A large audience will show that Virginians care about the ntegrity of our elections, and that we demand transparent and reliable elections.
