'Daily Voting News' for June 26, 2009. Trojan Horse invades New York, TN victory, TX no to Voter ID


The Tennessee Senate's defeat, last week, of a bill that would have delayed a switch from paperless e-voting machines to optical scanners is already having an effect. Shelby County Commissioner Steve Mulroy is pressing the county election commission to begin the switch. Some counties in New York will be switching from levers to optical scanners this year, too - testing the uncertified scanners on 1.4 million real voters in real elections in a 'pilot program.'
