Guest Blogged by John Gideon of I know that any voter who was affected by a machine malfunction or had to wait in a long line will disagree but we seem to have dodged a bullet so far in this primary. Voting machine malfunctions were wide-spread as were electronic poll book failures. This evening and tomorrow will bring us many more reports of problems as counties get polls closed and begin to tabulate the votes. Please note that our information comes from media reports and not anecdotal reports from voters.

Also in the news this evening is a report from Cuyahoga Co Ohio where a judge has denied an injunction filed by the ACLU in which the group hoped to stop the county from changing to centrally-counted paper ballots....
