We are happy to join the Action Alert from VoteTrustUSA and ask that the EAC do their job and demand that the ITA reinspect the Diebold software looking for banned 'interpreted' code. Diebold has admitted that it is there. Now the ITA needs to find it and, if necessary, withdraw the qualification of Diebold software until the 'interpreted' software is removed. So far 36 organizations have signed the VoteTrustUSA petition. Concerned citizens have sent 9465 emails and 1175 letters so far. There is a lot of good that has happened today. Nearly 6000 emails were sent to the EAC and nearly 700 letters. Besides that Connecticut decided to wait a year and keep their levers. New Mexico announced they were going to wait on any further purchases of Sequoia Edge. And, Wisconsin is now a vvpat state but with the added bonus of having a 'disclosed source code' mandate....
