Andrew Gumble LA City Beat 30 September 2004
Bad news for the campaigners trying to force Riverside County to come clean about the inner workings of its controversial electronic voting machines.

John Mills Opinion in Tacoma News Tribune 30 September 2004
Republicans think Libertarian Jeff Jared cost Slade Gorton his seat in the 2000 U.S. Senate race and accordingly cost the Republicans control of the U.S. Senate.

Paper Trail    Story Here  Archive

Editorial Indiana Courier Press 29 September 2004
For our grandchildren, and for their children, the future of electronic voting is limitless. Indeed, by the time they are of voting age, even the term "electronic" may be archaic. Future generations will likely be voting from their homes on secured devices unimagined today. But today, we are in the pioneer age of electronic voting. These touch-screen devices we will be using Nov. 2 are the Model-Ts of electronic voting. There is much to learn from experience, much that we do not know. And that's why citizens concerned about the integrity of the voting process worry that the system Vanderburgh County will be using this fall does not provide for a paper trail of the votes cast.

Pending fiasco    Story Here  Archive

Editorial Volusia-Flagler News Journal 29 September 2004
What can save the Florida election now?
It's a dispiriting question. The stage is set for disaster. Fifteen counties will be using a paperless, touch-screen voting system that has a deeply troubling record of inaccuracy, and state officials have managed to tangle up valid challenges long enough to make it unlikely a more reliable method can be found. (Volusia and Flagler counties use the more reliable optical-scan voting machines, which produce paper ballots.)
