CCRC presents Cracking the Code Electronic Voting Machine Corruption in Texas
Cracking the Code - Electronic Voting Machine Corruption in Texas In 2014, Dr. Laura Pressley ran for the Austin City Council to bring much needed fiscal accountability to the Austin City budget. She noticed egregious election irregularities associated with the tabulation of electronic votes and as a candidate she has filed a historic election contest challenging the results of her Runoff race that occurred in December 16, 2014. She will be presenting details of how Travis County is violating the Texas Constitution and Texas Election laws and the implications these issues have across Texas. Since filing her lawsuit, candidates from Tarrant, Harris and Dallas counties have confirmed similar violations are occurring across the state. Her presentation is titled, Cracking the Code - Electronic Voting Machine Corruption in Texas. Dr. Pressley is a native of the DFW area and was raised in Mansfield. She earned her Ph.D. in Chemistry from UT Austin and was an engineer and business manager in the semiconductor industry for 17 years. She holds 4 US patents and is the coauthor of numerous peer reviewed scientific articles related to semiconductor device processing. She is also an entrepreneur, and worked with the Texas Eagle Forum and the Texas Legislature on a number of science and technology issues. Dr. Pressley’s community involvement includes serving on the Executive Committees of several boards such as the Travis County Battered Women’s shelter, and the Center for Natural Living. She has appeared on the CBS Early Show, Good Morning Austin, and has testified as a citizen’s advocate to the City Council, and the Texas Senate and House.
