Hacking American Elections, Gerrymandering and Voter

Suppression: An update and what we can do about it

An Example of Gerrymandering

Friday, September 1
7 to 10 pm, Sunrise Center

Bob Fitrakis, Jim Soper, John Brakey, Lori Grace and others TBA

In this panel presentation and discussion, we will look at what now has become well-known: the reality that American elections can be easily hacked by both foreigners and American insiders.
We will look at the evidence and discuss what can be done to address this problem.
We will also look at what strategies will successfully address this problem and which ones are being used at this time. Additionally, we will look at the failure of recounts here in our country and what would need to be done to make them worthwhile. The larger problem of American trust in our election system will also be discussed and how it affects voter participation in our elections.

We will also discuss what Donald Trump has done to the Federal Election Assistance Commission and how that may affect our future elections. Additionally, we will look briefly at voter suppression and gerrymandering, how that affects our election results and what is currently being done to address that problem as well. Those deeply interested in addressing any of the above with their money or energy are invited to a strategy meeting on Saturday, September 2. Details to be announced later.

Note: this evening will be live streamed (look for the link here at http://trustvote.org). Participants on-site and those who are live streaming will be able to ask questions of panel members.
