Daily Voting News For July 26, 2006

Daily Voting News For July 26, 2006


Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org and VoteTrustUSA.Org

A new report, from the National Research Council, is out and it "Blasts Cost, Inadequate and Compromised Testing of E-Voting Systems and Inappropriate Involvement of Voting Machine Vendors". "This is a moment of truth for electronic voting" warns former Republican Governor of Pennsylvania and U.S. Attorney General, Richard Thornburgh. "The report confirmed many of the concerns that voter advocacy groups have been voicing for years and even acknowledged the influence that such groups have gained in the electronic voting debate. “Many of these groups focus on security issues and play an increasingly important role in focusing public attention on the conduct of elections and in stimulating state legislative action intended to mitigate security risks.”"...
