We have a unique opportunity to legally challenge an election in which over 4,000 ballots are missing from electronic voting machines. We need your help with a contribution to move this lawsuit forward.
In December 2014, Dr. Laura Pressley ran for Austin City Council. Election night we were told she lost the election. Not believing those results, she ordered a hand recount of the ballots. Electronic voting machines in Texas are required to provide for "ballot image storage" and retain an electronic image of each ballot cast for all elections. Election law in Texas allows for a manual recount of images of ballots cast in electronic voting machines.
During Pressley's recount, it was discovered the images of the ballots that voters cast could not be retrieved. Basically, over 4,000 ballots are missing. Dr. Pressley filed an election contest and lawsuit in the attempt to determine the true outcome of her election.
This is the first lawsuit filed by a Texas candidate that brings to light electronic voting machines and their lack of retention of images of the ballots cast as required by the Texas Election Code. With no ballot images, election results cannot be verified, and the checks and balances for our elections are placed into question. Therefore, the integrity of our vote is at risk. We need your help in moving this critical election lawsuit forward to Save Our Vote!
