Bits and Pieces today. As reported here yesterday Sequoia Voting Systems has blamed one or two poll workers in 6 counties for doing something strange at the back of the counties Advantage DREs that would cause the correct ballot to be voted yet would report that ballot as being from a different party. And, that incorrect report is only on one of two internal, redundant memories. It all sounds very wrong to me and it's probably a good thing this problem may only happen during the primaries when party preference means something.
All but one of Cuyahoga Co Ohio's ES&S optical scan machines seem to have tested satisfactorily.
Los Angeles Co election officials owe it to the voters to count every ballot possible. They don't seem to understand that simple premise for some reason.
Tuesday will be another busy day though the news from Rhode Island and Vermont will be pretty slim with not a lot to report. However, Texas and Ohio will more than make up for a lack of news from the other two primary states. We look for a busy week next week....
