Message John Gideon
Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org Today is a mixed bag of important news items. One mobile messaging company is predicting that we will be voting via our cell phones, twitter, etc. in just a couple years. There is more from California regarding the decertification of Premier/Diebold 1.18.19, as system that would not be used again anyway. There is also some news on yesterday's election in New York state that found the two candidates with but 25 votes separating them. This election will clearly end up in court just as the Minnesota Senatorial race has. There are also a few editorials from newspapers in states that are considering VoterID.

I will be taking a bit of a hiatus until Sunday evening or Monday while I attend a conference. Enjoy the weekend....
