Stolen or Lost?    Story Here  Archive
Steven F. Freeman, AlterNet. Posted January 20, 2005.
Russ Baker's critique of my work analyzing the exit poll discrepancy ("Election 2004: Stolen or Lost") ? and, by implication, of the courageous stand taken by John Conyers and a small number of his Congressional colleagues ? is flawed from the first line. No one has said, "Exit poll results were more accurate than actual ballots." The question is whether the official count is an accurate reflection of ballots cast. In a system where campaign managers serve as election supervisors, where voting machines provide no assurance that votes are counted as cast, and where counts and "recounts" are conducted in secret, we must rely, unfortunately, on indirect evidence, such as exit polls, to ascertain the veracity of this official count as a measure of actual ballots cast.

In particular, I am concerned that by seeking official censure and fines, you are engaged in a ive and partisan misuse of your legal authority. As eager as many disgruntled voters are to have a court of law finally assess the merits of the challenge actions, I have serious doubts about the validity of the sanctions case your office is pursuing.

Column: Virginia voters should demand voting equality    Story Here  Archive
Jonathan McGlumphy Collegiate Times 19 January 2005
With the inauguration of President Bush this Thursday, the 2004 election cycle will finally come to an end. However, many questions still remain, particularly in Ohio, where numerous reports of voting irregularities have come to light in recent weeks. The example of unverifiable electronic votes due to the lack of a paper trail comes readily to mind. Even more disturbing is the fact that Ohio Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell ? the man in charge of certifying the votes ? was also co-chairman of the Bush/Cheney campaign in the Buckeye state. This is a clear conflict of interest, and it makes one wonder if a single vote even counts
