Daily Voting News For February 18, 2008

Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org

I’ll take the opportunity, once more, to remind you that the work we do takes a lot of time and requires assistance from all of you. We appreciate all of the assistance that our supporters have given us in the past few years. That assistance has allowed us to continue doing our work and has allowed us to support local groups in their work. Please consider helping us. 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 ...
