Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org 'Lawyers for the state and groups that opposed Ohio's voter identification rules claimed victory Wednesday in a settlement that suspends the law for absentee voters and clarifies and expands it for voting in person.' / Hart Intercivic has been under the radar lately. VoteTrustUSA has an article that lets you see who is behind the company. / Cuyahoga Co Ohio is back in the news again. Seems they decided that they would make free use of workers lap-tops to make memory card reading a bit easier. No telling what viruses may have been passed around. / There seems to be a yellow button on the back of Sequoia DREs that is suddenly getting a lot of attention because it can be used to gain access to the machine and could be used to vote more than one time....
