Dear Election Official:
I believe that election integrity is the foundation of democracy, and that the transparent investigation of election problems is imperative.
I believe that the public has the right to an honest discourse on the performance of its voting technologies, and that knowledge of their performance is a prerequisite for that conversation.
I believe that truly independent security professionals and academic researchers should be not only allowed to examine election technologies, but required to publish their findings.
For these reasons, I urge you to allow independent, non-ITA testing of the voting machines used in your county during the 2004 presidential election.
