Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org It is amazing that different media sources can read a report (or not read it) and report on it and those reports are totally different. The recently released Cuyahoga County, Ohio report told that vote-memory card totals failed to match electronic voting machine ballot tallies in more than one quarter of the samples checked. The report also found that hundreds of votes were lost, that others were recorded twice and that software used to count the ballots was vulnerable to data problems. The New York Times reported the problems. Meanwhile the local Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that the audit is good news for touch screen and that the audit showed that a tally matched the official record. It makes one question who read what in the report....
