This talk covers the dutch campaign against unverifiable voting on computers, which is part of a growing movement world-wide to reject these computers. Successes in Ireland and (surprise) the US seem to indicate that media, law-makers and the general public are beginning to wake up. For far too long The Netherlands have been the European capital of 'black-box style' electronic voting. It was time someone challenged Nedap, the leading manufacturer of unverifiable voting "machines" in Europe, in their own country. The talk very briefly describes the international situation with regard to electronic Voting, with emphasis on European history and events. It then describes the dutch campaign that was set up this year. I will talk about the results of the FOIA (IFG) requests we made, the results of our lobbying as well as highlight some of the media attention we got. We need help: I will also try to motivate you, the listener, to become active against unverifiable e-Voting in/on your own country, bundesland, weblog, city, province, university or wherever else you can. We can win this one. And we must: either democracy destroys black-box voting or it will eventually destroy democracy.
