Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org "With gratitude, VotersUnite! applauds Secretary of State Bowen's decision to decertify voting systems in California and recertify them for limited use with extensive conditions and safeguards intended to mitigate their shocking vulnerabilities and inadequacies. We appreciate that she has her priorities in order and is protecting the voices of voters, rather than deferring to the complaints of those election administrators who prefer convenience over accuracy, or bowing to the protestations of vendors who have misrepresented their products."...
