Message John Gideon
Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org The news has been rather sparse this weekend. It appears that Liberty Voting owned by the Dutch company known as Nedap, is pressuring counties in New York to buy their voting machines even though they have not been tested by the state and their use would violate some state laws. Liberty seems to be poised to go back to court and do anything necessary to get a solid foothold in the state. These are the same machines that have been outlawed in the Netherlands and Ireland.

Tuesday will be the last day for "Daily Voting News" until the weekend. We are going on hiatus and will be attending a conference in New Orleans....
