Guest Blogged by John Gideon of Congratulations to the Pima Co Arizona Democrats, Republicans and Libertarians who all worked together along with their attorneys and Election Integrity activists like John Brakey and Jim March. This group, and the countless other citizens of Pima Co, were able to convince the County Board of Supervisors that they need to release all of the data files from the Diebold system used by the county. Because this group was "rock-solid" in their stance they now have all of the files from the 2006 primary and general elections and the May 2006 Regional Transportation Authority election. These files will now be scoured for evidence of election fraud or hacking. The information obtained from them will be used to create a computerized tool that will help elections officials and political parties nationwide investigate their own local voting systems for security weaknesses that could be used to rig elections. Great job!!

A couple days ago I mentioned a letter from a Solano Co California Supervisor who wanted a Board of Supervisor's hearing about last Nov.'s election and 1,321 phantom votes. The supervisor has now apologized for a mistake in computing the number of votes. The total is now 11 more votes cast than voters who voted. The Board of Supervisors has also put elections on the agenda for their next meeting....
