Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org I'm back after a much needed rest and with a freezer re-stocked with fish. Today, in catch-up mode, I am running some of what I think are important items from the last week. In two cases these items come from VotersUnite. One is a recount of public hearings here in Washington state with regards to an upgraded voting system to count the "Ranked Choice Voting" ballots in one county's upcoming primary and general elections. We were very pleased with the openness and willingness of state and local election officials to work with us and listen to our concerns, and then to act on those concerns. I would also like to give a plug to a book review done by my associate, Ellen Theisen, for a book called "Cassandra, Chanting". The book is an excellent piece of fiction and I recommend it to anyone who has any interest in elections and electronic ballots. The author is "Anonymous" but they are part of the NIST team so their concerns should be all of our concerns. This fiction could easily be fact and we may never know it. Also please note the call for help from Arizona. Activists there have a ton of data given to them by the courts but they need technical help wading through it....
