Host Stephanie Potter welcomes Bev Harris of Renton, Washington, who founded Blackboxvoting.org. In 2002, Bev was among the first to reveal that modern-day voting systems are run by private for-profit corporations, using a certification system so fundamentally flawed that it allows machines to miscount and lose votes, with hidden back doors that enable "end runs" around the voting system. After discovering that we have a voting system that has become divorced from the citizens it serves, Bev Harris founded the nonprofit group Black Box Voting to help citizens fight back and to restore the ownership of elections to The People. Besides voting machine fraud, her organization also takes on gerrymandering, voter role purges, political privacy issues, and more. Tune in to find out what's happening here in Oregon and around the country.
