1. This is not surprising but will someone PLEASE tell Bonifaz

that by advocating Early Voting, he may be clearing the way for election fraud and the purchase of DREs in a state that doesn't seem to have many yet.

I know it's supposed to be part of the "voters' bill o' rights" not to have to vote on Election Day, but Early Voting has been a failure in many states so far, involving both the loss of the secret ballot, the purchase of DREs at the expense of paper ballot systems, and the loss of the chain of custody of even the electronic ballot box.

It's not my state, but for those in MA who REALLY care about election reform, you need to advise him not to go down this road unless it can be guaranteed that there will be no fraud and no abuse of the voting system and NO privatization of elections as a result of Early Voting. And if DREs are involved, all of the above is just about impossible.

Good luck!
