The Future of Democracy in the Current American Election System

In the last few elections millions of Americans were illegally prevented from voting; cast votes that were never counted; voted on electronic voting machines and watched their votes switched before their eyes.

Even the statistics published by the US Census Bureau reported a 3.4 million vote discrepancy in the official tally in 2004! What part of the biggest crime of our history isn't sufficiently newsworthy for the mainstream press?

Come hear the evidence and decide whether democracy can function given the state of America's elections and its media system.

New York is at a critical junction, the last state in the union to have decided what voting system it will use in the next election. New Yorkers are in a unique position to lead the charge.
