Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org Were you aware that HAVA mandates the accuracy of voting machines? Were you also aware that many of the voting machines used in elections today fail miserably to meet those mandates? The maximum legal error rate is 0.0002% or one error in 500,000 ballot lines. We have now begun to list the machines that have failed to meet those limits and some of the results are stunning. Who is regulating this failure to meet federal law?

On Tuesday an excellent report was issued by "Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under The Law". It is an excellent report on the primary elections so far this year. (See the first link below)....
