Guest Blogged by John Gideon of I'm back from a very rewarding trip to Washington DC. The conference was a combination of Election Reformers of all types plus elected officials and just interested citizens.

Today's DVN is a mixture of today's news and some selected from the weekend's news. Included in this are three articles from yesterday's Daytona Beach News-Journal. When you read these articles ask yourself why the EAC would refuse to put out a warning. Diebold admits to the problem. Diebold has also as much as said they won't warn other customers. The EAC spokesperson explains all that the EAC has done but only makes excuses as to why they feel they can turn their backs on a problem with 25,000 voting machines as if it will just go away. We should all let Ms. Layson and the EAC know our displeasure with this "head buried in the sand" attitude.

There were more ballots counted in East Haven Connecticut than voters who went to the polls. A hand-recount in a close mayoral election found a discrepancy between the machine total and the recount total. The good thing is this is the first election in which the state has used optical-scan so they have paper ballots to hand-count.

True to their ways, ES&S is turning the screws on New Mexico counties in order to get every tax-payer dollar from them....
