Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org If there was ever any reluctance to point a finger at Sequoia Voting for the disenfranchisement of thousands of voters in Denver Colorado last month then the time to admit the failure is now. A recently released by city-officials 32-page report found enough blame for county and state officials but pointed the finger squarely at Sequoia. The report blasted Sequoia for "decidedly subprofessional architecture and construction" work on the ePollBook software. "The ePollBook is a poorly designed and fundamentally flawed application that demonstrates little familiarity with basic tenets of Web development," consultants Fred Hessler and Matt Smith wrote. Is there any reason at all to believe that their voting machine software is any better?...
