Two of the most well known names in voting activism, Greg Palast, and Blackbox Voting,  Bev Harris’s activist site, have issued reports highly critical of absentee votng.

Read them here and

Blackbox is making the claim that vote by mail is still counted, in large part by the very same voting machines that they have built their own reputations attacking. Greg Palast mentions it as one example in many of the electioneering tactics employed to rig 2004, in an article published by Yes! Magazine.

Launching the site

So I’ve been working on a book on the problems with absentee voting, and needed a place to start putting together my thoughts online…. and here it is. There are many, many problems associated with Vote By Mail (VBM) or Absentee Voting. Regardless of terminology, this site is dedicated to providing a a space to organize not only my thoughts, but to collect information, organizations, and individuals from around the web and get them organized.

It is also my intention to provide this site as a useful resource to the Internet community. Because when I started looking for good resources on vote by mail opposition it was pretty hard to find.

Anyway, that’s what this site is about. In the word’s of John Lennon, “You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us [me].”

Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

This site is now up and running. Long live Democracy!
