Daily Voting News For December 11, 2007

Daily Voting News For December 11, 2007


Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org

According to reports from Vigo Co Indiana, where there is a recount being held for Terre Haute mayor, a court appointed recount commission is seated to oversee the process. State law, according to the news report, requires that one of the three members of that commission be a representative of the voting system vendor. So ES&S is overseeing the recount of ballots. It is time the people take back our elections. No vendor should be allowed to be contracted to take over counting votes or sitting on commissions that make decisions in our elections.

Is Cuyahoga Co Ohio being set-up to fail yet again? That is the question being asked and answered in a blog from a county voter. Just why is Brunner suggesting to the county that they totally overhaul their voting system before the March primary?...
