The Coalition for Visible Ballots is a non-partisan,
grassroots movement of unprecedented unity on
a single issue. That issue is very simple: Invisible
ballots are a bad idea. These organizations and
individuals are united on the proposition that "We at the Coalition for Visible Ballots believe that the only way to restore fair and honest elections to our country is to set aside ALL machines, including electronic of any type, touchscreen, optical scan counters--and use PAPER BALLOTS, HAND-COUNTED IN PUBLIC VIEW.
Is this a perfect system? No. But as one of our foremost knowledgeable members, Bev Harris has said, elections conducted in this manner have perhaps five or six "attack vectors", whereas those conducted with electronic equipment have about 50 or 60. Many of the expert researchers, journalists, computer programmers and security engineers, mathematicians and statisticians who have been studying this critical issue have come to the same conclusion, and we stand with them: PAPER BALLOTS, HAND-COUNTED in PUBLIC VIEW. Will we ever see this happen? Maybe not. Is it an uphill battle? Probably. But we will accept nothing less as a "repair" or "temporary fix" to our election systems."
Why Paper Trails Won't Work as Ballot of Record Paper Ballots, hand counted, is the only answer. Anything less in an invitation to fraud. Elections will be a contest of which side can defraud the other more efficiently until we go back to paper ballots, hand counted.
