'Daily Voting News' For April 5, 2007

Message John Gideon
Guest Blogged by John Gideon of Today's top news item, in my mind anyway, is a column written by Bob Koehler who is an editor for Tribune Media Services and is a friend and fellow Election Integrity activist. Today Bob wrote an article about another friend and activist who many of you know, Bernie Ellis. Bernie was one of the movers and shakers in the EI movement in Tennessee and one of the organizers of the "Gathering To Save Our Democracy" in Nashville in 2004. I hope you read and enjoy Bob's article and that it moves you to help Bernie. Thank you. In other news the Virginia House of Delegates rejected a proposed amendment from the Governor to a bill that would require a phase-out of DRE voting machines and replacement by optical-scan machines. The Governor wanted the legislation to not take effect until July, 2008. If Virginia can vote to ban DREs why is Congress dragging their feet?...
