Matt Loy Harvard Crimson 20 December 2004
While Harvard students mull over the split ticket outcome of the recent Undergraduate Council presidential elections, Ohio residents are still technically waiting for the results of another election?their Electoral College delegation for last month?s presidential race. Six weeks and one major Eastern European voting scandal later, what happened on November 2 in the Buckeye State remains unclear. Though Bush?s victory is not realistically under scrutiny, Ohio voters deserve a quicker and more thorough examination of the election results than they will receive.

Editorial New York Times 20 December 2004
Every vote is supposed to count in America, but candidates too often maneuver to disqualify votes that they think might go to the other side.

Voting Rights Groups 'Block' Talk of Machine-Free Elections    Story Here  Archive
Lynn Landes FreePress 20 December 2004
So much for a free and fair exchange of ideas.  At conferences and hearings across the country, traditional voting rights organizations have successfully blocked any serious debate on machine-free, paper-only elections.  It appears that our well-entrenched so-called 'voting rights' organizations, including the NAACP and ACLU, haven't absorbed the lesson from America's election debacles.  They would rather invite the industry-funded National Association of State Election Directors (NASED) to speak at their conferences, than invite researchers and activists who will argue that the machines must go.

Voting in America: The flaws persist    Story Here  Archive
The Roanoke Times 19 December 2004

The Florida vote-count debacle of 2000 did not recur in 2004. For that, however, credit the fact that this year's presidential election was not as agonizingly close as in 2000. Do not credit great strides toward a fairer, more accurate and more confidence-inspiring system of voting and vote-counting. The latter does not yet exist. The Florida margin in 2000 was extraordinarily tight: George W. Bush won the state that year by 537 votes (officially, anyway) out of millions cast, and the election hinged on Florida's electoral votes.
