Threat of Internet Voting Spreads, and poor widdle Diebold sues test lab
John Gideon's Daily News warns of attempt to sneek internet voting into Washington State.
E-voting activists need to be ready - this is THE new battle, internet voting. John also tells about Diebold suing the test labs HAH DIEBOLD! I've been in court against Diebold myself, so I have no sympathy for them. SysTest doesn't deserve any love either. Read Joe Hall's blog about that also in John's Daily News.

Premier/Diebold has filed a lawsuit against SysTest Labs. The voting machine vendor claims that SysTests loss of EAC accreditation in the middle of testing on the newest Premier voting system has wreaked havoc on Premiers business. This should be an interesting suit.

Even though reports from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), and dozens of computer security experts strongly and unanimously warn of insurmountable threats to the privacy and security of ballots cast over the Internet, the Washington State legislature is proposing and fast-tracking a bill to allow Internet voting for its military and overseas voters. VotersUnite does not believe in using military and overseas voters as guinea pigs in a voting scheme that has already been determined by experts to be an essentially impossible task given the current architecture of the Internet.

3. I warned of this....when? Back in 2006? They laughed at me. They always laugh at me.

At the very least investors should follow my predictions because I can always spot a trend, even if people in politics won't.

5. Arizona has already done it.
Arizona Democrats led the way in 2000 as 45 percent of the 86,970 voters used the Internet to cast their primary ballots.

To vote online, voters enter personalized codes from the ballot, along with place and date of birth.


Personalized codes, huh? My neighbor, Dixie, has her mailbox right next to mine. I know when her birthday is and and where she was born.
