Who is S.A.V.E Democracy?
We are a national network of culturally and politically diverse citizens
working together in a non-partisan, unified manner for the purpose of restoring
the sanctity, integrity , openness and legality of our electoral system by
replacing current voting systems with same day hand counting of paper ballots.
- that sufficient evidence of the extreme dangers of computerized voting
has been compiled -- dangers that increasingly include vote counting methods
designed to facilitate and protect vote fraud on a massive scale -- so that

latest, most dangerous computers ever created: Touch Screen voting machines
that do not produce a ballot, contain two-way modems, and, like other

"As Mr. Jones points out,
nowhere in the system today from the manufacturer to the independent testing
authority to the logic and accuracy testing done by the state is security
testing part of that procedure."
