FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ACLU Recommends Amendments to Miami-Dade County Commission
MIAMI – The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida and its Greater Miami Chapter today sent a letter urging the Miami-Dade County Commission to amend a resolutions calling for voter-verified paper trails for touch-screen voting machines.
While the ACLU supports Commissioner Carlos A. Gimenez’s resolution to enlist the commission in petitioning the Secretary of State to mandate voter-verifiable paper trails, the ACLU also highlighted the growing national concerns about the reliability of electronic voting machines. “The iVotronic voting machines do not meet basic standards to merit the confidence of voters, and simply adding a verifiable paper trail is not an adequate fix,” the ACLU said in its letter.
