If you find yourself skimming through DVN and skipping articles that don't sound relevant or interesting, you're doing exactly what I did. But now that I'm reading almost every one while reviewing their suitability for inclusion, it's become clear that headlines can be deceiving.

And not necessarily deceiving in the normal sense of being misleading or wrong. Specifically, in the context of DVN, some headlines have little probative value to assist readers in predicting their interest in the full story. We are therefore exploring different ways to better communicate the content, some of which you may have noticed (i.e., supplementary parenthetical key words or description). Alternatively we're trying to draw attention to significant content in this introductory paragraph, such as e-voting being eliminated in Ireland.

But neither of those seems appropriate for the first story below on e-voting, so we now have option three: suggesting you open the link and take a look....

  • NAtional: Electronic voting: Free software and transparency are not enough LINK

  • NAtional: Sunlight on NASED ITA Reports LINK

  • National: Voter Fraud Myth Used to Push Voting Policies that Harken Back to the Jim Crow Era LINK

  • FL: Florida Republicans Withdraw Plan to Revise Voting Rules LINK

  • CO: Aspen's instant-runoff voting quick but confusing LINK

  • HI: Kaneohe Neighborhood Board Elections (first all on-line and telephone voting) LINK

  • KS: E-mail voting bill passes the Kansas Senate LINK

  • PA: Seven ACORN workers charged in voter probe (turned in by ACORN) LINK

  • SC: SC legislative panel approves voting ID bill (photo ID) LINK

  • TX: Voter ID: The Fight Continues LINK

  • Ireland: Minister Gormley announces Government decision to end electronic voting and counting project LINK

  • Philippines: Comelec disqualifies all bidders LINK
