|While We Still Have Time: The Perils Of Electronic Voting Machines And Democracy's Solution: Publicly Observed, Secure Hand-Counted Paper Ballots (HCPB) Elections, by Sheila Parks Ed.D.|
DEMOCRACY IN OUR HANDS
Sheila Parks, Ed.D., is a former college professor who left her career because she wanted to work to help make the world a better place and did not feel she was doing that in academia. Sheila works as intently on changing herself as she does on trying to change the outside world and views both the inner and outer as extremely important and inseparably entwined. She was in Occupy Boston and is the Founder of the Center for Hand Counted Paper Ballots. Active in the current wave of voting rights since the crimes of the presidential election in Florida, 2000, she is against the use of all electronic voting machines in our elections and is for the solution of publicly observed, secure hand-counted paper ballots (HCPB) elections. An ardent and long time feminist, internationalist, and peace and justice activist, she defended the abortion clinics with her body for a very long time. She does not want to go back to doing that and fervently hopes that those of you who have not had to do so, never will.
As a consultant for the New Hampshire Department of Education, Sheila assessed compliance with Title IX, Education Amendments of 1972, prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex. On Tufts University Radio, she created, hosted, and produced a live public affairs interview show, “We The People”. She also designed and led workshops on how to recognize and combat sex discrimination in the workplace for the U.S. Civil Service Commission in Massachusetts. She has researched and observed hand-counted paper ballots (HCPB) elections in real time and has detailed knowledge in the specifics of hand-counted paper ballots elections.
