Challenges to the Popular Vote
If partisan gerrymandering and legislative selection of electors replace the popular vote – then voting and voting machine companies go out of existence. If the popular vote does not matter, the existence of voting machine companies becomes imperiled.
The voting machine industry is integral to American democracy. No commercial enterprise is as vital to free and fair elections as the companies that enable citizens to cast their ballots to secure the confidence that their votes will be counted accurately. The future of the industry is dependent upon America’s continued dedication to the electoral process. As Americans lose faith in a democracy it is incumbent on the voting machine companies to step up and restore confidence in voting accuracy. As the leader of the Government Blockchain Association (GBA) voting working group, we invite you to help us get people to embrace accurate, secure voting to manage the peaceful transfer of power.
America was founded upon the principle that all persons are created equal and that all just powers of government are derived from the consent of the people. Those principles are under threat. If democracy falls, the voting machine industry will fall with it. Please join us in our efforts to build standards for accurate, just voting that provides instant, undisputable results.
We invite you to provide suggestions for solutions to the problem.
