On the environment and health:

On voting:

For complete transparency in voting, Lynn supports one standard for both political representatives and voters, that means "open voting", no secret ballots. As that is unlikely to gain public support any time soon, Lynn supports paper ballots and public hand counts at the polls on election day (see: Protocol For Honest Elections - America’s Nontransparent Voting System Is ‘De Facto’ Fraud) In a 2005 article, Plan B: Organize Parallel Elections & Signed Ballots, Lynn called on citizens to organize parallel elections in response to the total lack of transparency in U.S. elections. In several states, activists did just that.  Lynn's numerous articles on the right to vote can be found at Her work has been featured in the books, Hacked and BlackBoxVoting.  Lynn was a guest speaker at events across the country, and also appears in several documentaries including: Got Democracy, The Right To Count, Stealing America, and her own, Voting 101 and The Fix Is In
