Your editorial “Fail-Safe Voting?”, September 20, 2007, could be titled “Myth-Based Voting?”.

Another Day, Another Loophole In PA 07-194

What if a post-election audit uncovers a problem with the machine count? Wouldn’t it be a good idea to examine the memory card and the voting machine for evidence that could be used to detect fraud or to understand the cause of the problem so it could be prevented next time?

Surely You’re Joking, Professor Altschuler!

Recently I attended a meeting of the Cornell Club of Hartford as a guest of a member. She had invited me and several other voting advocates because the speaker was Cornell Professor of American Studies, Glenn C. Altschuler. He is an expert on election history. Professor Altschuler was an entertaining speaker, spiking the talk with […]

CT News Roundup

TalkNationRadio.org Part 3 of 4 <read> It’s not in LHS’s interest to have their machines viewed as failure prone and I don’t think that they should be in the pipeline between the moderator and the registrar on the one hand and the SOS on the other. So I think the whole flow of information that […]

Middletown Press – “Town officials learned of the audit in a telephone call from a reporter Thursday night.” I wonder what the official plans are to notify registrars that their towns […]

Updated: 9/14 and 9/16 Yesterday I attended and participated in the public random drawing of districts for audit. Hopefully, in the next day or two CT-N will put up the video.

ConnPost Covers Election Glitches

Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz said there were only a “very, very small number of issues” with the new machines… Bysiewicz said that of the 125 Connecticut precincts using the machines Tuesday, only six reported significant problems with their machines. As a retired software engineer I would say this is not surprising, given the […]

Voting Vendor and Yale Professor – Suggest Changes To Election Procedures

Dori Smith aired the second segment of a four part series on voting integrity, yesterday at 5:00 PM on WHUS.
