Guest Blogged by John Gideon of Thousands of Georgia absentee ballot requests have been denied because the voters did not sign the requests. Many of the requests are via a post-card provided by the RNC and the signature block is supposedly hard to find on the card. Over 7,000 requests have been rejected in Cobb Co and 2,800 in DeKalb Co.

Connecticut has submitted their reports done by UConn for the SoS office with regards to their voting systems to the EAC for inclusion in the "clearinghouse". The state and the university have become good partners and are to be commended for the audits of memory cards that they accomplish before and after elections.

As well as being a font of good information and warnings they should also serve as a valuable example of what a state can do when they actually want to ensure that voting system problems are found. While the reports the EAC allows to be on their site are only a small portion of the reports that should be in the EACs clearinghouse, what is there is a beginning....
