Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org All US citizens who have not been otherwise disqualified, have the right to vote for President? Not if you live in the US Virgin Islands. They are citizens but residents have no right to vote for President. / "If you needed any more evidence to counter the argument that it would be "too expensive" to dump all the shitty, unreliable, inaccurate, hackable, disenfranchising touch-screen (DRE) voting systems in favor of paper ballots, just take a look at Utah. They're the state which pushed out heroic 23-year Emery County Election Clerk Bruce Funk because he had the temerity to allow independent computer security experts to test the Diebold touch-screen systems the state was forcing him to use. (The experts found massive security flaws described as "the most serious" ever discovered)."...
