In addition to the proposal itself, Sen. Aguilar will describe the supporters and industry opponents that will be campaigning for and against Amendment 69 this fall.

Are American elections being hacked? Jonathan Simon talks about the shocking vulnerability of our electronic voting machines and the evidence that that vulnerability is and has been exploited to flip elections. His book is Code Red: Computerized Election Theft and The New American Century. Then, there is one way to make sure your voting machines aren’t being hacked and it’s being used by one county in New York State. We talk with Board of Elections Commissioner Virginia Martin.
