Guest Blogged by John Gideon of The news from New Jersey is a bit distressing though probably not at all surprising. The Secretary of State, who just this month took over control of elections from the Attorney General, is backing Sequoia Voting Systems against concerned counties and the voters of the state. In a press release from last week and resulting news articles they have misstated the facts with regards to recent court decisions and have tried to make it appear that Princeton Professor Ed Felten rushed to judgment and made inaccurate statements. Let's hope that Hart Intercivic will be a more ethical, honest vendor when they take over Sequoia. Any improvement is a pipe dream but it's nice to dream occasionally....
