Guest Blogged by John Gideon of The issue of 50,000 to 100,000 ballots that may not be counted in Los Angeles Co. is still alive and well. Every one of those ballots that can be counted must be counted. The Courage Campaign has a petition to Acting ROV Dean Logan telling him to count all of the "Decline To State" votes possible.

The news from the "Potomac Primaryies" has been very quiet. The biggest problems seem to have been e-pollbooks that had voters who were registered as either Democrat or Republican listed as unaffiliated. This clearly kept many voters from being able to vote. The other huge problem was the reports from all over the area about polling places running out of ballots early. This caused lines and many people simply walked away without voting....
