Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org Remember - 1-866-Our-Vote / In an attempt to stop HBO from airing the documentary 'Hacking Democracy' which starts tomorrow evening and runs for the whole month at various times, Diebold has made threats and pointed out mistakes that they feel are in the documentary. What is funny is that the errors Diebold claims are in the documentary are not even in this film. / On Guam, Bill 355 passed the territories legislature, if now signed into law by Governor Felix Camacho, would suspend the use of electronic voting machines in local elections until their use can be demonstrated to be as accurate and effective as traditional paper ballots. / Today we feature links to a well done series of informational articles in 'Computerworld'....
