Undernews: Another Day Of Broken Vote Machines

Another Election Day, Another Day Of Broken Vote Machines

From Undernews, compiled by Editor Sam Smith

ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER - Voters throughout the county reported malfunctioning voting machines and technical glitches Tuesday afternoon. Shirley Filadelfia said none of the voting machines were working at her voting site, the San Juan Capistrano Community Center at noon. She said there were paper ballots available for Democrats, but none for Republicans. She asked the poll workers to call her when the machines were fixed. "There's some voting irregularities -- only the Democrats were being allowed to vote," she said. "My concern is how many people went there today and weren't allowed to vote because of this.". . .

Lee Demson in Seal Beach also said voting machines were broken at his site. Machines at his voting site were functioning perfectly, until the paper record printing on the side wouldn't show how he voted on Measure A. "I'm just a computer geek that happened to vote and I tried reading the print and Measure A wasn't coming up," Demson said. "It lists your yes or no and who you voted for. But on Measure A, there was nothing from Measure A." He wound up voting on a paper ballot, because the machines had to be shut off for repairs. . .

Cori Tanner opened up the voting station in a residential garage in Coto de Caza and was operating by herself for most of the morning. Tanner, a veteran poll worker who has helped out during elections for ten years doubts she'd ever work the polls again. . .

Gordon Campbell: On The Saudi Oil Refinery Crisis

So the US and the Saudis claim to have credible evidence that those Weapons of Oil Destruction came from Iran, their current bogey now that Saddam Hussein is no longer available. Evidently, the world has learned nothing from the invasion of Iraq in 2003 when dodgy US intel was wheeled out to justify the invasion of Iraq, thereby giving birth to ISIS and causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people.

Gordon Campbell: On China And Hong Kong (And Boris)

In the circumstances, yesterday’s move by Lam to scrap – rather than merely suspend – the hated extradition law that first triggered the protests three months ago, seems like the least she can do. It may also be too little, too late. More>>


Dave Hansford on The Dig: Whose Biodiversity Is It Anyway?

The DOC-led draft Biodiversity Strategy seeks a “shared vision.” But there are more values and views around wildlife than there are species. How can we hope to agree on the shape of Aotearoa’s future biota? More>>


There Is A Field: Reimagining Biodiversity In Aotearoa

We are in a moment of existential peril, with interconnected climate and biodiversity crises converging on a global scale to drive most life on Earth to the brink of extinction… These massive challenges can, however, be reframed as a once in a lifetime opportunity to fundamentally change how humanity relates to nature and to each other.
