Daily Voting News For October 10, 2006


Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org

Sequoia has done a good job in an attempt to misrepresent the facts in the Brennan Report. They seem to have twisted the facts in order to deceive potential customers in New York. Read more in the NY section / "There is something you can do NOW, even before the election starts. Verified Voting's Election Transparency Project is enlisting members of the public (and especially organized groups) to help find out what really goes on in our elections. Our aim is to document everything we can, so that we actually know what happened after election day. The project has six questionnaires to guide you through the observation process. You can choose one of them or all of them. You can even do them if you are involved in other election observation projects, such as the Election Protection Coalition or Pollworkers for Democracy (consult Google for more information on these projects)."
