Daily Voting News For October 19, 2006

Daily Voting News For October 19, 2006


Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org

Utah has announced a change in election rules that will require a minimum audit of 1% machines in each county. A 3% audit will be done for congressional races and 5% for smaller elections. These are minimum requirements. This is a good first, baby-step now the state needs to make an adult step to a meaningful audit. / Officials in Chicago and Cook Co Illinois are already predicting a meltdown. While the Freeman, Craft, McGregor Group blamed any mistakes on poll workers (no surprise there) even experienced elections officials had problems with the Sequoia HAAT. / Denver Colorado will be doing a 5% audit of their machines. / Here we go again. Early voting in Arkansas begins next Monday. At least one county has still to receive their PEBs and paper ballots. Maybe Saturday. I wonder if they do any L&A testing at all? ...

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>>

ALSO:

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.
