Yesterday I pointed out a problem in Luzerne County. Unfortunately I moved that county from it's home state, Pennsylvania, to Ohio. My apologies to both states and the people of Luzerne County. Over 200 Danaher 1242 DREs are now reported to have failed on primary day in Philadelphia, PA. These are the same machines that Bucks County PA has now announced they want to buy, except they want used ones. As far as Arkansas goes, yesterday's primary election was a complete disaster for elections officials, poll workers and most of all for the voters in the state. iVotronic machines did not work properly, would not start, and would not shut down on time. Some precincts just ignored the machines and used paper ballots because the machines were not working. Paper ballots could not be read by some optical-scan machines due to lack of proper software. Some voters were turned away from the polls because they ran out of paper ballots. Yes, they were denied their right to vote because of a lack of paper ballots....
