Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org The Connecticut House has voted 150-1 to follow the unanimous "yes" vote of the Senate to require audits in 10 percent of randomly selected polling districts during state elections starting in 2008. Only 13 states require audits of election results, and most stipulate far less than 10 percent of polling places. Our congratulations go to the voters in the state of Connecticut. The Sarasota Co Florida Commissioners decided that not only will they follow the mandate from the voters to dump their ES&S iVotronic DREs but also to dump ES&S. One commissioner said, "I've lost faith in ES&S entirely". The county will now turn to Diebold to provide their optical-scan voting system....
