California SOS Debra Bowen on voting machines and ballot initiatives.


Thanks to the Courage Campaign and Erik for linking to the following videos:

The first one, Secretary Bowen describes how and why she followed through on her duty to de-certify voting systems that shows inherent and persistent problems. She talks about how California is moving forward now that several voting machines are no longer acceptable in Califorina.

In the second one, SOS Bowen provides valuable information about the current initiatives to change the allocation of California’s electoral college votes from the current winner take all system, in time for the ’08 presidential election. She points out how this initiative might be fair if it was done by all states. However the current push, backed by Republican strategists is targeted only at states like California, that are traditionally voting for the Democratic candidate in presidential elections.
