25. County by county, polling place by polling place....
No matter how it turns out, the most notorious county in the US in 2006 - FL 13 - has already decided to trash the touch screens and go back to the opti-scans. Well, that's a start.

There are 3,141 counties in the US. (US 2000 Census). One by one they must do the same. For starters, get rid of the touch-screens. Then, the tabulation systems must also be discarded if they are still run by Microsoft softwared PCs. You got to be kidding? Windows software counts our votes?

Tomorrow, I will call my County seat or go there, and ask where that one touchscreen with optional use, came from I used and I will ask when they will get rid of it. The rest of the equipment was optiscan with er - PC type modem transmitting votes, tabulated on the opti-scanners.

We need to get to work. Call your county board of elections. Asking questions is cheap. The great feeling you get when you make a difference is indescribable.
