Guest Blogged by John Gideon of In today's "Featured Article" I relate how the EAC is getting bad advice from their very own Board of Advisors. This board includes officials who are either under the influence of the voting machine vendors or who have taken funds from those vendors. The board has sent the commission a resolution that asks the commission to cut corners in the voting system certification program. They actually want the EAC to make the system more like what was the previous system as administered by NASED. That is the system that tested and qualified all of the trash that is running our elections now. That is the system that has allowed the vendors to beta test their voting systems in real elections. The EAC would do well to ignore this bad advice....
