Guest Blogged by John Gideon of It appears that not many officials in New Jersey believe Sequoia's explanation of the problem 6 counties found following the state's primary on Super Tuesday. Sequoia has attempted to blame the poll workers for a problem where, on some machines, the internal paper memory does not match the internal memory, and neither match the facts from the poll books. The issue is with how many votes were cast for each party and not vote totals for candidates. Election officials have questioned Sequoia's theory. Now a large association of state constitutional officers has voted unanimously to demand an investigation. Machines will be shipped to Ed Felten at Princeton University for possible inspection. Our gratitude is given to those state officials in New Jersey who have questioned the excuse that it is the poll workers or the voters who are at fault. The vendors almost never accept responsibility. One vendor may now have their excuse proven to be wrong.

VotersUnite encourages all voters to check their registration and ensure they are still on the voting rolls and that all of their information is current. It should only take a few minutes and may save your ability to vote in November....
