The Machines Must Go

We've gone from "prove it" to "what can we do about it?" Here's what you can do...

If you do not accept the machines counting votes, make your voice heard at county commissioners meetings (every other Tuesday).

If no one is yet doing this in your county, be a leader. Speak from what you know and emphasize:

- No more rigged machines
- Paper pollbooks
- Hand tally (hand count) the paper ballots
- The MN legislature should also ban absentee and mail-in ballots (except for long-distance military)
- County Commissioners have the power to remove epollbooks, electronic voting equipment, and return to hand tallying paper
- County Commissioners are responsible for certifying their county's election results - County Commissioners can choose not to certify local elections - Same goes for Cities and Townships
