Guest Blogged by John Gideon of and VoteTrustUSA.Org

Arizona found one discrepancy that was explained away and took about 3 hours yesterday afternoon. They do not have to be cumbersome, huge tasks. / 29 disabled voters used accessible voting machines in New York City last week. That's $52,000 per voter. / Write-in votes from 8 Boston precincts were not counted after last week's primary. The court has told the city to unseal and count all votes not counted. / Why did Sequoia Voting Systems put out a press release that misrepresents conclusions of the Brennan Center Report? / Why are Diebold voting machines sold in Connecticut as LHS AccuVote OS? Why is no mention of Diebold ever made in the media. Is someone trying to keep secrets?...
