Daily Voting News For March 22, 2007

Daily Voting News For March 22, 2007


Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org

Today is one of those days when I wish I could act like the US Senate and just claim the absence of a quorum and put on “Pachelbel’s Canon” or some concerto by Mozart or Bach. There is a lot to talk about; but not a lot to say about; any one thing. I did find out from Steven Harsman, Montgomery Co. Ohio Board of Elections, that they inspected a total of 256 voting machines but the test done for screen calibration was done on 124 machines and they found that 56 of those machines needed recalibration. Also today CA SOS Bowen issued a press release and a draft of a plan to review every voting system used in the state. If the present draft is finalized as it is now it is going to be hard for DRE machines to pass the review and maintain certification. In Cuyahoga Co. Ohio a second Board of Elections member has resigned leaving only two recalcitrant members who are refusing to leave their jobs. Meanwhile in the county there is another investigation into misdeeds within the county elections office. This time investigators are gathering evidence that will show someone entered the county voting system prior to election day and printed absentee and early voting results illegally....

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.
