Daily Voting News For October 15, 2006

Daily Voting News For October 15, 2006

Guest Blogged by John Gideon of

You have probably noticed that as we get closer to the general election the amount of voting related news is growing. I expect that very soon the amount of news will force me to make a modification to the way 'Daily Voting News' is sent out. I could cut the new in half and send some in the late morning and the rest in the evening. Rather than send it out twice a day I will send out a condensed version to the email subscribers. That version will have what I consider to be the top 15 or so stories. The complete 'DVN' will be posted at the normal locations; VoteTrustUSA, The BradBlog, OpEdNews, and ScoopNZ. VotersUnite will also be posting the complete list of articles and we have removed the dust bunnies from our "Voting News" database and many of the articles and the complete DVN can be found there. You will be notified when the change needs to be made. Thank you for reading and taking part in democracy....
