Dan McCrea Biography

Title:
Co-Founder of Florida Voters Foundation
Position:
Con to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
Reasoning:

“This is an historic day… when those demanding the security of paper ballots and those demanding HAVA compliant accessibility for voters with disabilities speak with one unified voice. Listen up, state and county officials. No voter should be left behind, especially in the name of equality. That is simply absurd. It’s time to scrap your DREs and replace them with non-tabulating ballot marking devices, providing all voters paper ballots – no exceptions.”
