Daily Voting News For February 16, 2008

Daily Voting News For February 16, 2008

Guest Blogged by John Gideon of

Try as I might I just can’t come up with anything to put in this space. That has not happened very often in the four years that I have been doing this work. So I guess I will take this opportunity to remind you all that we do this work thanks to the support of the election integrity community. We are a project of International Humanities Center so any donations to us are tax-deductible. We also have a few copies of “Runoff” by Mark Coggins that are still available. “Runoff” is a fun mystery novel sure to keep you reading and there are more than a few laughs as you do so. What is really fun for those of us in elections is that the mystery is centered around a hack of an election in San Francisco. We will happily send you a copy, signed by the author, for a $50 donation. Visit our donations web page and give to help us continue to do our work. Thank you...
