An Election Reform Birthday

Monday, March 30th, 2009

Check out the gift I got from my folks for my 26th birthday last week, a Votomatic punch-card voting machine from Palm Beach County that was used in the 2000 recount election!

This thing is now sitting in my living room as a reminder of the work we do every day at Why Tuesday? to make voting in America as reliable, accessible and secure as possible. Thanks, Mom and Dad!

If you come here often, you might remember that I checked out some of these very machines right around the time that HBO’s Recount ran last year.
