Early Voting Must Be Backed-up with Paper Tapes
Call to Action
Texans Demand Paper Backup Records for Early Voting
Austin, Texas – October 24, 2016 – Early Voting results in Texas are at risk. Texas laws require Early Voting paper backup records to prevent electronic hacking of elections. To the surprise of Texans, a bureaucrat in the Texas Secretary of State’s office has issued instructions to counties to ignore state election laws that require the printing of paper backup records for Early Voting.
Election Integrity Legal Case Pending
in Texas Third Court of Appeals
Computerized voting machines have been operating for over a decade and Texans don’t trust them–and now we know why. Dr. Laura Pressley’s historic election contest has uncovered electronic voting machine corruption errors, security breaches, missing back up tapes and no ballot images exist for a legal recount in Texas.
Pressley’s landmark election integrity legal case is currently pending in the Third Court of Appeals and a ruling could come any day. Thank you to our supporters and contributors for investing their time and support so that honest and fair elections, that follow the letter of the law, happen in Travis County.
Thanks to our dedicated supporters, we have successfully
filed our final brief with the Third Court of Appeals
Computerized voting machines have been operating for over a decade and Texans don’t trust them–and now we know why. Dr. Laura Pressley’s historic election contest has uncovered electronic voting machine corruption errors, security breaches, missing back up tapes and no ballot images exist for a legal recount.
Candidates all over Texas have known about these illegalities for over a decade and Pressley is the first to take the responsibility to address them in the Texas courts.

Residents of the City of Weatherford,
As I originally expressed during a post-election phone interview with the Weatherford Democrat, again during my Republican election-day precinct convention and during the 2010 Parker County Republican Convention, I completely oppose the use of electronic, programmable voting machines. Questioning the 2010 Weatherford municipal election was not entirely results-based. Average Americans need to understand the simplicity in which these machines can be manipulated, unless of course you trust politicians. Average Americans also need to demand the re-instatement of paper ballots, unless of course you trust politicians. Average Americans need to doubt, distrust and question what your elected officials are telling you. After all, it is the elected officials who LOVE the electronic, programmable, video-game style voting machines.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Eric Matthews Formal Withdrawal of Election Contest
June 18, 2010
Initially the intent in pursuing an election contest was to ensure election codes that had been violated were enforced thereby protecting and preserving the sanctity of the vote. It was concluded that without full disclosure of the items requested the ability to pursue enforcement on the basis of the evidence on hand would not be possible outside of a Court of Law. Additionally, the financial cost to the City and County resulting from a drawn out legal battle in Court would far outweigh the outcome and not be in the best interests of the taxpayer. Therefore, I have decided to withdraw my contest of the May 8, 2010 City Council Election.
I had hoped that after Robert Parten, the Parker County Elections Administrator had admitted to violating election law, assurances in the form of full public disclosure of everything that had been done properly and not done properly would have been given by the County since the County had been contracted to run the election. This would have removed all doubt from the public that the sanctity of the vote had been honored and every vote had been counted properly.
