Nationally syndicated radio personality Tom Joyner will testify on Wednesday before a congressional panel investigating thousands of reported voting irregularities that included the lack of voting machines, poorly trained precinct workers and a run on ballots at polling places across the country this year.
More than 10,000 irregularities were cited by callers to the 1 866 MYVOTE1 Hotline, a joint project between the Tom Joyner Morning Show and the NAACP National Voter Fund, during the political primaries and caucuses since January.
Joyner will testify with other voting rights activists before the Committee on House Administration hearing, “2008 Presidential Primaries & Caucuses – What Lessons Have We Learned,” at 11:30am EDT April 9th in 1309 Longworth House Office Building. The committee, which has responsibilities over federal elections, is chaired by Congressman Robert A. Brady (D-PA). Other panelists will be Greg Moore, executive director of the NAACP National Voter Fund; John Bonifaz, executive director of Voter Action, and Cecilia Martinez, executive director of The Reform Institute.
