Elias & Carroll say no to Diebold voting in Pima

TUCSON -- Pima County Supervisors Richard Elias (D, Chair) and Ray Carroll (R) did the right thing today voting against the purchase of controversial and untrustworthy Diebold voting computers.

The rest of the board reportedly voted to buy the machines, but whether they would ever be used is still a question. Why buy them then?

These computers cannot be trusted to run fair elections. Way too many people can hack and change computer info, switching votes in places like Ohio, or Arizona.

Good job, Elias & Carroll voting to protect fair and accountable public voting in Pima County.

Brewer is planning to fix the election. She is also trying to kill SB1557 even though it is sponsored by a Republican.

There is supposed to be an article in tomorrows paper about this.

We need to put pressure on Pima. The other counties already caved because no one in those counties made the effort to actually pressure their boards. So, it is up to Pima.

Bronson and Valdez sold the Democrats out.

There will be a meeting on the 15th open to the public to address these issues.

Please come if you can. Cheryl AuditAZ

Does everyone who uses an ATM feel that their account is in jeopardy? Does everyone who buys anything on EBay or uses a credit card to buy something on the internet feel that a hacker will steal their money or identity? Why does an electronic device that has been tested and certified by three different agencies and used by many states and whole countries for election purposes cause so much stress? Because people who were once afraid to use anything but a bank teller; have trouble understanding the task of programming a VCR; can only make and answer calls on a cell phone never utilizing any other capabilities; and were last to buy a computer for their home are the loudest to speak about something they know nothing about. I believe they have a caveman mentality ! Those people of the 19th century might want to join those of us in the 21st !
