Say No to Hackable Voting Machines 

A voting machine that can change your ballot? That’s right. The threat of hackable voting machines with no paper audit trail in New York State is back!  

  • On Monday, April 12th join the statewide call rally to pass bills A1115/S309 that would ban hackable voting machines.
  • Call Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins @ (914-423-4031) and Speaker Heastie @ (518-455-4911).

Big Tech UpdateOn March 25, the House Committee on Energy & Commerce held a hearing, “Disinformation Nation: Social Media’s Role in Promoting Extremism and Misinformation.” Big Tech CEOs—Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), Sundar Pichai (Google and its subsidiary YouTube), and Jack Dorsey (Twitter)—testified for more five and a half hours.  The role of social media in the January 6 insurrection and the spread of Covid disinformation were areas of focus of this hearing. However, the issues raised were broader and the CEOs were asked questions about their business model, profiting from disinformation and the use of algorithms to target certain groups. Click here for a more detailed summary of the hearing via #BigTechIsBroken.
