Allegra worked with groups around the state to try to implement a reliable, trust-worthy voting system when New York gave up its
Lever machines:  LWV, New Yorkers for Verified Voting, the Brennan Center, and the NY Democratic Lawyers Council.   Allegra travelled to Ohio, PA, NH and Florida as well as New York locations where she worked for election protection. In NH, she participated in the recount of the Clinton- Obama primary in 2008.  In FL, she worked at the polls for four days in Broward County with the FL Attorneys Election Protection effort, observing six hour lines and voter intimidation in the Obama-McCain 2008 race.
Meanwhile, the mission of The Advocates is to bring to the public differing views on current “public policy” issues. “Public policy,” therefore, is what we as a nation legally and traditionally follow.
