Guest Blogged by John Gideon of New Hampshire will now conduct a full recount of all ballots cast in the primary. This, after formal requests were made by Dennis Kucinich and Republican candidate Albert Howard.

Solano Co California Supervisor Barbara Kondylis has requested that the rest of the Board of Supervisors discuss the fact that in last November's election in the county 1,321 more votes were counted on their ES&S voting machines than voters who voted. The Chair and immediate past-vice Chair, who set the boards meeting agenda, have refused to allow the Supervisor's concerns to be heard. She has now sent an open-letter to the citizens of the county in hopes they will pressure the Chairman to put this issue on the boards next meeting agenda.

So, the machines are deemed to be "subpar" when being certified by present standards. In an upside down world, it only makes sense to lower the standards to accept those "subpar" systems. Simply unbelievable. The Secretary of State and all complicit state legislators need to be recalled and replaced with people who will protect the voters of the state....
