Documentary and discussion looks at election manipulation

Are we losing our democracy? Are elections being manipulated? And what can be done to protect our votes?

These are the questions examined in the documentary Stealing America: Vote by Vote, which will be shown at Niles Discovery Church, 36600 Niles Blvd., Fremont, on Saturday, May 12, at 1:30 p.m. This screening, part of the Second Saturday Documentary Series, is free and open to the public.

Stealing America examines the state of election manipulation as of 2008 in the United States. The film focuses on voter disenfranchisement, the use of electronic voting machines, and voting anomalies such as uncounted ballots, inaccurate final vote tallies, and vote switching.

The screening will be followed by a discussion, led by author and expert, Dr. Jonathan Simon. He will bring updated information about what has been done, what new vulnerabilities have been discovered, and what we can do as citizens to protect the most basic part of our democracy: elections.

The Second Saturday Documentary Series is co-sponsored by Niles Discovery Church and the San Jose Peace and Justice Center. Learn more about the series at http://bit.ly/nilesssds.
