Guest blogged by Ellen Theisen, Dave Klein, and John Washburn

As the continuation of John Gideon's valued creation, The Daily Voting News, nears its two-month anniversary, those of us who have been fortunate enough to carry on John's work are beginning to understand what will be necessary for its existence to continue into the indefinite future. At this point, we need to create a "budget" of the potential resources--volunteer time, computer resources, or direct financial donations--that can be devoted to continuing DVN.
