Message John Gideon
Guest Blogged by John Gideon of Voters in Randolph Co Indiana are being asked to vote on a system made by now defunct Voting Technologies International; the same system that has failed in the last two elections and that failed in pre-election day set-up. Meanwhile an election this week in Scotland has been a disaster. High-speed ballot scanners failed, hundreds of thousands of ballots were spoiled, and postal ballot delays all added up to one huge mess. Also a new judge's ruling in Alameda Co, more from Florida and a fun deposition taken from Linda Lamone in Maryland....
