Protect Your Secret Ballot Meeting

Protect Our Secret Ballot
King County plans to adopt mail ballot tracking. This is more than envelope tracking. It adds a unique barcode to each ballot that is linked to the voter’s id. This eliminates the secret ballot, taking away all voter privacy. Unique barcodes on ballots are unconstitutional, illegal, and bad policy.

New Report on Vote By Mail, VBM Does Not Really Increase Turnout

http://weber.ucsd.edu/~tkousser/Will%20Vote-by-Mail%20Elections%20Increase%20Turnout.pdf

This report confirms many other reports that suggest that Vote-By Mail will not really increase turnout in the most important races, and now adds that it may actually DECREASE turnout in those races by up to 3%.

It also confirms that Vote-By Mail is being justified as a cost saving device.

The conclusion on pages 33 and 34 will give you a great sense of what the report is all about.
