DON’T TREAD ON MY VOTE ANNOUNCES PRESS CONFERENCE
ON BALLOT INITIATIVE;
AGENDA INITIATIVE REACHES GOAL

 

PITTSBURGH, PA. VoteAllegheny, a non-partisan election integrity organization, strongly supporting legislation being proposed by a coalition now circulating petitions in Allegheny County, reports developments in two of the three initiatives being undertaken to enact legislation toward safe, secure, accessible, auditable, recountable voting systems in Allegheny County.

Dr. Michelle Zuckerman-Parker’s Don’t Tread On My Vote will hold a press conference Monday, July 31, at 11:00 a.m., on the City-County Building Portico, 414 Grant Street, Pittsburgh, to announce progress toward collecting 22,000 petition signatures to place the proposed legislation on the ballot before the citizens of Allegheny County. The hashtag is #22KSignatures, and the website is http://DontTreadOnMyVote.com. Video will be live-streamed at Each Vote Is Sacred on Facebook, at https://m.facebook.com/donttreadonmyVOTE/.

“This petition is for all citizens, this initiative benefits everyone. County residents do recognize that it takes action to assure the sanctity of our votes,” emphasizes Dr. Zuckerman-Parker.

We are also pleased to announce that the petition to place the proposed legislation on the agenda of Allegheny County Council has exceeded the required number of signatures (500) and was filed with the County last week. Ron Bandes, President of VoteAllegheny and a computer security expert, states, “Having people who know what they are doing, who excel in their fields of knowledge and expertise, is really essential to securing our elections. There is no reason not to pass this legislation, and empower those who understand the issues to steer our County toward more secure election systems.” 

The goal of the legislation is the formation of a county commission of volunteers whose mission will be safe, secure, accessible, auditable, and recountable elections in Allegheny County, especially in light of the increasing hazards in elections.

VoteAllegheny is a non-partisan volunteer election integrity organization which advocates secure, accessible, recountable voting for all.
