We'd like to ask all of our listeners for two special favors this Election Day.
As part of our continuing look at the technology behind voting machines, we'd like to ask each of you who goes to the polls to spend an extra minute or two behind the curtain to thoroughly check out the machine you're using. We'll be accepting calls Wednesday evening on "Off The Hook" at +1 212 209 2900 between 7 and 8 pm ET for you to give us your observations. We'd like you to look for such things as the exact model of the machine you're using, anything that looks odd or out of place, confusing or misleading directions or buttons, unused areas, potential ways of resetting the machine, and so on. In other words, we would like the hacker perspective on the voting machine you encounter. Tell us something that the average person might miss. While it may seem trivial, we believe compiling this information from all over the country Wednesday night may prove very educational.
The second favor we'd like to ask listeners is to tune in to "Off The Wall" this Tuesday from 6 to 7 ET and pledge your support to WUSB by calling +1 631 632 9872 so that they can continue to bring alternative programming to the world. This is the last edition of the show during the fundraiser and all of the premiums mentioned on previous shows will be available including the special autographed double CD set of last week's "Shadow Over Long Island" presentation.
