Opinion in the Miami Herald 09 August 2004
It's too bad that Miami-Dade County Manager George Burgess had to cut short his vacation to return to County Hall last week to respond to growing mistrust in the accuracy and fairness of the fall elections. But it is heartening that Mr. Burgess shows a strong sense of responsibility for the election process. Even better was his announcement that the county's Office of Inspector General and Office of Audit and Management will devote their considerable abilities to ensuring that all the T's are crossed and the I's are dotted during the weeks leading up to the Aug. 31 and Nov. 2 elections.

New voting system falls short of verifiable    Story Here  Archive

By BRETT BURSEY Opinion in The State (SC) 10 August 2004
While The State has devoted considerable ink to the debate over the Election Commission’s plan to buy new voting machines, much of it has been in support of the $46.5 million acquisition. Those critical of the state’s plan have been labeled Luddites, accused of playing Chicken Little and dismissed as part of an “Internet-based movement of paranoia.” Those charges are unfair and deflect rather than address the serious questions voters have about the process used to procure the machines and the efficiency of the machines themselves.

Opinion by Frank Cerabino in Palm Beach Post 08 August 2004
I think there ought to be a new word to describe what's happening to voting in Florida.
Publixification. That would be my word for it.
It's the best way to describe the "Paper or plastic?" paranoia that is spreading way beyond the borders of what might be normally assumed to be the lunatic fringe.
