Guest Blogged by John Gideon of Governor John Corzine of New Jersey has signed yet another extension of the electronic voting paper verification requirement for his state. Now citizens of New Jersey will again vote in an election without any paper. What the state needs to do is to get rid of their Sequoia Advantage voting system and get an actual paper ballot system that really works. Events in the state's primary election prove that the Advantage system may have actually violated federal accuracy law (HAVA Section 301(a)(5)). No vvpat printer would have fixed that problem.

According to BlackBoxVoting.Org, while 4.3 million voters are registered to vote in Indiana the state has recently purged 1.1 million voters from the voter rolls with one quarter of that total coming from two counties. Those and other stories are below....
