Warren Stewart, National Ballot Integrity Project Columbus Free Press 19 January 2005
In the shadow of overwhelming irregularities in the Ohio?s election, New Mexico has played out it?s own post-election drama almost unnoticed by anyone outside the state. Even before the November 2, New Mexico had been in the news for reports of malfunctioning voting machines and other problems. Hundreds of incidents were reported on Election Day. The state got some national attention for once again leading the nation in undervote rate. All this coupled with a small margin of victory in the presidential race (just 3/4 of 1%) led to concern about the accuracy of the results.

RawStory Blue Lemur 19 January 2005
We write to you at the very outset of the 109th Congress, to request that our committee hold hearings and investigate the vital issue of protecting our citizens right to vote. The right to vote is the very foundation of our Democracy and is at the core of our Committee?s jurisdiction, and we can think of no more important or urgent issue before us than protecting our democratic rights. While the election is settled, however, our job as legislators on the Judiciary Committee to make sure that the constitutional right to vote is protected is just beginning.

Senate thins election proposals    Story Here  Archive
BRAD SHANNON THE OLYMPIAN 18 January 2005
Lawmakers began the laborious process Monday of deciding what election-law changes to enact to rebuild public trust in the voting system. Secretary of State Sam Reed's call for changes including an earlier date for the state's traditional September primary got a mixed response from a Senate committee. The parts of his proposals that seek to standardize procedures for counting ballots and deciding what a voter's intent was were well received.

One Last Election Lesson    Story Here  Archive
Editorial New York Times 18 January 2005
The November election may feel like ancient history, but it is still going on in North Carolina. The state has been unable to swear in an agriculture commissioner because a single malfunctioning electronic voting machine lost more ballots than the number of votes that separate the two candidates. The State Board of Elections, the candidates and the public are sharply divided on how to proceed. The mess North Carolina finds itself in is a cautionary tale about the perils of relying on electronic voting that does not produce a paper record.

New voting system not needed in Lake County    Story Here  Archive
Editorial Northeast Ohio News-Herald 17 January 2005
When it comes to conducting virtually foolproof elections, seven of Ohio's counties are far ahead of the other 81.
As it became apparent that the time had come to replace outmoded, old-fashioned voting machines or other archaic methods of casting ballots, elections officials in those seven counties did their homework.
They studied every available option. They listened to representatives of companies that wanted their business. They went on field trips. They weighed all the alternatives - plus the costs involved - and they chose to purchase state-of-the-art voting devices that are amazingly efficient in how well they work.

In the Shadow of Dr. King, counting the vote remains a civil rights issue    Story Here  Archive
Bob Fitrakis, Steve Rosenfeld and Harvey Wasserman Columbus Free Press 17 January 2005

In the shadow of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., America's electoral crisis continues. King marched across the south and the nation to guarantee all Americans, black and white, the right to vote. But in 2000 and again in 2004, that right was denied. Now in the wake of another bitterly contested vote count, is the electoral situation improving in the spirit of Dr. King?



Why We Must Question Our Elections    Story Here  Archive
Arlene S. Ash, Ph.D. TruthOut 17 January 2005
I am a statistician. When I testified about electoral tampering in Martin County, Florida, in November 2000, I focused exclusively on the fact that the number of disputed ballots would have changed the outcome. That was shortsighted. As U.S. newspapers have written about the Ukraine, an election's outcome may be less important than how it was conducted. Democratic elections must be verifiably fair.
