Program Title: WINGS #48-19 Election Protection
Description: Unlike Canada, which has paper ballots counted in the presence of scrutineers, the United States has fallen prey to the corporate voting industry. It boasts of its free and fair elections; but even in Congress, official reports are pointing out massive suppression of voters, massive purging of voter rolls, alarming malfunction of election technology and vulnerability to hacking. Two courageous advocates explain who benefits from these problems and what is being attempted to rectify them. A positive example has been set by the state of Virginia.
Host(s): Sandina Robbins
Featured Speakers/Guests: Jennifer Cohn is an attorney investigating voting machines and other technology; Andrea Miller works to secure voting rights that should have been enshrined long ago, for people of color and for young voters.
