CA Voters: You Can Request a Paper Ballot

EFF recently launched the Paper or Plastic 2004 campaign to let California voters know they have the legal right to vote on paper at the polls today, but we've only had a week or so to get the word out, and we're not sure how far the news has spread. Today we hit on a novel approach -- going low-tech. To this end, created an 8.5 x11 poster [PDF] with a simple message: "YOU CAN REQUEST A PAPER BALLOT."

YOU CAN REQUEST A PAPER BALLOT. If you're heading out to vote, consider bringing this poster along and taping it up near your polling place. We fought hard to give California voters the option to cast ballots that can be verified, audited, and recounted. This option shouldn't be "removed" because voters aren't aware that it exists.
