And, as the Brennan Center exposed last week, because HAVA requires voter identity be tied with the information provided in the massive Social Security database, the big shots pulling the strings plan to simply shut down the SS database three weeks before the election.  That dirty trick will stop the registration of millions of new voters dead in its tracks.  Election officials won't be able to confirm the data, and the voter won't become registered. 

Can't think of a better reason to reject centralized voter databases. HAVA is hellish on a number of grounds.   

See Myers' research for a fascinating bit of history into the controls surrounding software driven voting systems.  Or, if you're not an election geek like we are, just watch the Turdblossom lecture, download the Voter's Guide, and pass those links along to voters.

In 2004, Rady Ananda joined the growing community of citizen journalists. Initially focused on elections, she investigated the 2004 Ohio election, organizing, training and leading several forays into counties to photograph the 2004 ballots. She officially served at three recounts, including the 2004 recount. She also organized and led the team that audited Franklin County Ohio's 2006 election, proving the number of voter signatures did not match official results. Her work appears in three books.

Her blogs also address religious, gender, sexual and racial equality, as well as environmental issues; and are sprinkled with book and film reviews on various topics. She spent most of her working life as a researcher or investigator for private lawyers, and five years as an editor.

She graduated from The Ohio State University's School of Agriculture in December 2003 with a B.S. in Natural Resources.
