Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org Last weekend a diverse group of members of the Election Integrity community met in Palo Alto, CA. One of the group's jobs was to write a mission statement. This statement became known to them as the "Creekside Declaration" and was recently memorialized by Chicago Tribune Columnist Robert Koehler, a participant in the meeting, in his column. The "Creekside Declaration" gives the mission of that small group, and I would argue all of us who work on elections integrity issues, as; "Mission: To encourage citizen ownership of transparent, participatory democracy."

Back from New Orleans so today I will catch up on a few of the big stories that took place while I was gone and catch up with the latest.

Did you think that no one uses punch cards any longer? You were wrong. One of the last, Ada Co Idaho has decided to change over to optical-scan because their punch-card machines and tabulators are just getting too old....
