Join NYVV on May 3 in Syracuse for State BOE Meeting


Please join New Yorkers for Verified Voting on Tuesday, May 3, at the New York State Board of Elections annual conference in Syracuse NY.


At the conference, NYVV will be conducting our first citizens voting machine survey. We asking concerned citizens to come to Syracuse, try out the voting machines, and complete survey forms to documenting the features, capabilities, and usability of each type of voting system.


We're holding a press conference at 11 AM to talk about the paper ballot optical scan alternative to DREs, and announce some new data we've collected from states already using precinct based optical scan systems.


We will spend the day distributing literature and talking about the paper ballot/optical scan option for New York State to election officials and members of the media and public who are attending the conference.


This should be a great event to continue to spread our message about paper ballots/optical scan in NYS. I hope you can join us.


Location, times, and directions are below.
