A glaring innaccuracy in the New York Times article about Congressman Holt's new election reform bill is pointed out in today's BradBlog article. The NYT says, "Mr. Holt's bill would require paper ballots to be used for every vote cast in November 2010." But according to the bill's text, e-voting machines that merely produce a voter-verifiable paper record are grandfathered in until 2014.

Secretary of State Kurt Browning and ES&S have both responded to the report from Florida Fair Elections Center.

Comelec says: We're ready to go forward with the automation. The Philippines Senate is asking: Who exactly is Smartmatic and are they really able to do the automation? And Business World responds with "A recipe for disaster."...
