 BayFF Event - Join Us for "E-voting and the Upcoming Election" on 
 Democracy is government by the people, and the right to vote is 
critical to determining what each of us
wants of our government. Nearly one quarter of American voters - more 
than 35 million people - will
exercise that right using electronic voting (e-voting) terminals in 
this election. Unfortunately, due to
equipment that has been hastily developed and poorly tested, your right 
to vote is in greater jeopardy
than ever before. There are widespread reports of voting terminal 
failures, and growing concern about
the (in)security of these machines is fueling fierce debate over how to 
ensure the integrity of
our elections. EFF is working to ensure that votes are verifiable and 
to train poll workers about
what to do when the machines fail. Come listen to our team leaders talk 
about the latest
developments, and share your thoughts on how we can make sure that 
every vote is counted.    WHO: Cindy Cohn, EFF Legal Director
Matt Zimmerman, EFF Staff Att.  Ren Bucholz, EFF Activism Coord.

# 10/14 Red Legged Frogs Vs. Developers Randall Museum, 7:30 PM.  
Free. 199 Randall way North of 17th St, South of Clayton (castro / upper  
What will stop a bull dozer on a 2004 development project? Answer: A  
California Red-legged frog. You may have encountered statements such  
as: "But, where will we put all the people: the schools, baseball  
diamonds, shopping centers and homes if the animals get in the way?"  
Better phrased: "Why should we care about the California Red-legged  
frog? There are plenty of them in Point Reyes National Seashore  
anyway...Why not let a few slide by in other places in the name of  
progress?" "Why bother"? This set of difficult questions rears its ugly  
head time and time again in the face of environmental protection today.  
In this talk I will attempt to make an argument for why one should  
bother to protect endangered amphibians on their land. I will examine  
the last 10 years as well as historical data of San Francisco Garter  
snake and California Red-legged frog populations from San Francisco and  
San Mateo Counties. As a way to help one understand the incredible  
diversity of frogs and their amphibious adaptations one will meet and  
have a chance to hold several amazing frogs from around the world,  
including climbing tree frogs, leaping bullfrogs and golden bell tree  
frogs, burrowing Malaysian painted toads, a poisonous bumble bee toad  
and Western toad and the Waxy monkey frog that even makes its own  
sunscreen. San Francisco Naturalist Society general meeting. Randall  
Museum, 7:30 PM. Free.
