Q&A with filmmaker David Earnhardt and Marc Baber of Truth in Voting

It's been four years since the 2004 election debacle yet these questions remain...

Why do 18 states still use computerized electronic voting machines?
Why are private corporations, with no obligation to protect the public interest, still maintaining and monitoring these machines?
Why are hundreds of primary election problems in states like Pennsylvania being ignored ("frozen" and malfunctioning machines, broken machines that were not replaced or fixed for hours, machines set up mistakenly so that only members of one political party could use them, etc..)?

Why are our country's loudest and most important voices silent on these issues? Where are Clinton, McCain and Obama?
Will you vote in November or will a machine vote for you?
Will the votes of Oregonians make a difference or will the November election be hijacked by the machines used in other states?
