How Obama Built His Historic Victory: The Numbers Tell The Story
The election of a black President was truly historic.Obama's margin of victory was as substantial as those of Clinton,accomplished by turning 9 (or perhaps 10)"red states" into "blue states,"despite a lower than usual increase in voter turnout nationwide.Analysis of the election results shows that Obama made huge gains in urban counties,and often in rural counties as well.This political realignment has put the Republicans on

In Defense of Lever Voting Machines
I generally make it a point not to publicly criticize election integrity advocates. But these rants against lever voting machines are just plain wrong. I have voted on lever machines in New York State since 1972. I know what they look like; I know how they operate. The misstatements play into the hands of a federal government that has sued New York State to force us to replace our beloved lever machines with computers.

UNOFFICIAL RESULTS IN SEVENTEEN OHIO COUNTIES CANNOT BE RIGHT
This raises the disturbing possibility that some 227,000 votes were lost by
touch screen voting machines in Ohio. Surely this merits a full-scale
investigation. Whether or not this "affected the outcome," a phrase generally intended to mean who won and who lost the election, is beside the point. If 227,000 votes were not counted, the outcome was affected.
