"We're Counting the Votes" Handcounted Paper Ballot Demonstration Videos

Original posts at http://www.democracyfornewhampshire.com/node/view/2648

These videos are made available by Democracy for New Hampshire to promote the use of hand-counted paper ballot election systems nationwide. The videos show the easy, transparent, observable, secure, and fair nature of this method of vote counting when done within the community by members of the community and administered by good and honest election officials.

What you see in these videos is the civic and community component that is present in proper election administration, as well as the
methodology. Our hope is that people will begin to remember the heart that is the grassroots, community-centered American election.
