******************

Voting integrity has lost a great friend, John Gideon.  John had a huge impact and leaves us all with a large gap to fill.

John was the co-founder of VotersUnite.org and the producer of the Daily Voting News.  John scanned the news daily to provide us all with news from all corners of the Nation and Globe.  We found many of the stories relevant  to Connecticut at the Daily Voting News.  They frequently became the basis of some of our posts.  We benefited from his insight and correspondence.  John also kindly ran many of our posts.  I  met John twice and we corresponded frequently.  I last saw him three weeks ago when he served as a local host of a conference in Seattle, as always, warm, friendly, and full of life, a friend to everyone.

I share the deep sense of sadness of everyone in the voting integrity community at the untimely loss of this giant of a man whom we all relied on for the most up-to-date information on issues related to electronic voting security through his Daily Voting News and the endless research and reports on the VotersUnite.org website. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. He will be missed greatly. whom we all relied on for the most up-to-date information on issues related to electronic voting security through his Daily Voting News and the endless research and reports on the VotersUnite.org website.
