Just as important as the voting machine issue is the issue of voter suppression. Why is it alright for legal voters to not be given a chance to use their right to vote? Why is it alright for states to overly restrict voter registration drives? Why is it alright to use ballots that are confusing and lack complete instructions? Today a US House committee met, after very little notice, to mark-up a bill that would keep hundreds of thousands of elderly, minorities and poor voters from being able to vote in Nov. This bill, HR-4484, would require every voter in the US to re-register to vote and to prove they are citizens and all before this November. This bill was replaced with another bill that will give us all another year but the substitute bill is even more restrictive in nature. Why is this alright? / On Wednesday EFF filed a brief with the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, asking the court to reject a request to dismiss an EFF lawsuit against the Ohio secretary of state and governor. The suit alleges the defendants abdicated their responsibilities to ensure Ohio residents had a right to vote. / Montgomery Co. Maryland is hiring the Election Center to investigate their failures. Sigh!!...
