Guest Blogged by John Gideon of "At least two commissioners and [Broward County] Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes question the reliability and credibility of touch-screen machines without a physical record of each vote.

Election Integrity Individuals, Group, Stake $1000 for Charity on Supervisor Jeff Stone's Offer!...
